Masks are required inside facilities, regardless of vaccination status.
Aurora officials tell TMJ4 that staffing shortages have contributed to the temporary closures and the recent COVID-19 surge.
The facilities include the urgent care center on River Center Drive in Milwaukee, and the care centers in Menomonee Falls and Brookfield.
The clinic in Menomonee Falls is still open despite the urgent care closing.
