Outaouais: closing of the walk-in at screening clinics

MISE & Agrave; DAY

The Outaouais Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS) announced the end of the walk-in mode in its COVID-19 screening clinics on Thursday.

While traffic for screening tests is at its peak throughout the province, the CISSS de l'Outaouais is interrupting screenings without an appointment for an undetermined period.

< p> “The suspension of the walk-in is due to the high volume that we are currently experiencing and to facilitate operations and fluidity,” explained the CISSS in a press release.

More beaches will be available for making an appointment in order to allow a greater number of people to be tested.

The authorities recommend that Quebecers be tested only if they have symptoms of COVID-19 . People who have had a rapid test that turns out positive should also simply self-isolate, without having their result confirmed with a PCR test, Quebec asked.
