COVID-19 Testing Clinic Closed as of February 24th
After almost three years
and over 39,700 COVID tests, the clinic in Almonte closed as of Friday, February 24th.
Patients with COVID-19 symptoms can take a free rapid antigen (RAT)
test or visit their family doctor, nurse practitioner, or local pharmacy for
testing. All these healthcare providers can also prescribe anti-viral
medications as required.
Thank You to the Team
Physicians and staff from Almonte
General Hospital, Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital and Lanark
County Paramedic Service, in partnership with LGLDHU, were involved with the
clinics. In fact, more than 100 healthcare
professionals have worked within the Mississippi River Health Alliance COVID
response since March 2020, including screening, vaccination and the testing clinic.
A big thank you to the healthcare teams at Almonte General Hospital and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital for leading this important initiative. It was a wonderful example of collaboration with our healthcare partners and the two hospitals working side-by-side as part of the Mississippi River Health Alliance to care for our local communities.
