Island Health COVID-19 referral-only screening clinics open in Port Hardy and Port McNeill

March 18, 2020

North Island — Island Health is working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) to respond to COVID-19. The situation is evolving quickly and our strategies are evolving to keep people in the communities we serve safe.

 

To increase our ability to test those whom health officials deem a high priority, Island Health is actively working to open more COVID-19 referral-only screening clinics across Vancouver Island in the coming days.

 

The referral-only clinics in Port Hardy and Port McNeill will begin taking appointments on March 18, 2020.

 

It is important that people do not call or attend a screening clinic unless referred by a primary care provider or an 8-1-1 nurse. Testing will be prioritized for people who meet the criteria set out below.
