COVID-19 Assessment Services Available for Huron Perth Residents
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Tuesday, March 24, 2020 – 08:45
Healthcare providers involved in the Huron Perth & Area Ontario Health Team are working together to provide COVID-19 assessment services to all residents. While some areas of the province are opening assessment centres, Huron Perth is coordinating a Virtual Assessment Model so that people can get an assessment from a trustworthy source without travelling and having contact with others.
If someone is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as cough or fever:
- Complete the Ontario government’s On Line Assessment tool at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/#q0.
- If the online tool tells you to seek clinical assessment, contact the office of your family doctor for a phone assessment. If you do not have a family doctor, contact Huron Perth Public Health. It is important that you do not visit your doctor’s office without calling first.
- If further action is needed, you will be given directions by the assessor.
For those without access to a computer, contact the office of your family doctor for a phone assessment. If you do not have a family doctor, contact Huron Perth Public Health.
Currently, Virtual Assessment Services are available during Family Health Team office hours and during after-hours clinics where available. Please do not show up at the office without calling first:
