A COVID-19 Assessment Centre will open here at Roseway Hospital. The Assessment Centre is located in the visiting clinic corridor. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., seven days a week.
This is an area where members of the public can be seen and assessed separately from the emergency department. Members of the public will be directed to go to the assessment only after calling 811.
People can consult the 811 website for screening information, and then call 811 if they have travelled out of country and have a fever with a temperature of 38°C or higher, and/or cough. 811 will provide direction on what to do next. If there is a need for in-person assessment, 811 will refer to the COVID-19 assessment centre and they will be contacted for an appointment.
The opening of this Assessment Centre helps reinforce the important role Roseway Hospital plays in delivering health care services to residents in our community.
