COVID-19 Assessment Centre Returning to Ross Memorial
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 18, 2022
(Lindsay, ON) – Ross Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre, which provides COVID-19 testing and clinical assessments, will once again be operating out of the hospital starting on Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
The COVID-19 Assessment Centre had been operating at the Victoria Park Armoury since January 11, 2022.
Appointments are available on-site Monday-to-Friday, excluding statutory holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
COVID-19 tests are by appointment only. To book an appointment if you are eligible, please call (705)328-6217. Due to demand, there may be a delay in getting through or leaving a message. Please continue trying, and refrain from leaving multiple voicemail messages. You will receive a call back within 1-2 business days.
In addition to testing, Ross Memorial’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre offers clinical assessments. Our on-site health care professionals can provide an assessment if your COVID-19 symptoms are getting worse, but are not severe enough to require an emergency department visit.
Ross Memorial is currently finalizing a plan for the COVID-19 Assessment Centre to allow community members access to Paxlovid, a recently Health Canada-approved antiviral drug that treats adults with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 who are at high risk of progressing to serious disease, including hospitalization or death.
Individuals seeking a clinical assessment are asked to book an appointment through the same (705)328-6217 phone number.
- Ross Memorial Hospital has conducted more than 60,000 COVID-19 tests since it began conducting tests in March 2020.
