Manitoulin Health Centre COVID 19 Assessment Centre & Testing closing this week

By Rosalind Russell – The Manitoulin Health Centre on Manitoulin Island is closing its testing centre for COVID.

President and CEO Paula Fields says the last day for specimen collection at the Centre is this Friday, March 22nd.

She says since the beginning of the pandemic, the Centre has provided safe and timely access to COVID-19 testing and thanks everyone who played a role in relieving pressure off the emergency departments and in protecting Island communities.

Fields adds the decision to close came about because funding for the program has not been renewed.

She says anyone needing assistance and/or more information, can contact Public Health Sudbury & Districts.
