The Integrated Center for Health and Social Services (CISSS) Laurentides encourages anyone with flu-like symptoms, onset or worsening of a cough, difficulty breathing, symptoms of gastroenteritis or loss of smell without nasal congestion to make an appointment for a COVID-19 screening test.
Even in case of minor symptoms, the Integrated Center for Health and Social Services (CISSS) Laurentides urges everyone to make an appointment in order to protect ones’ health, while preserving that of others.
“With the gradual deconfinement started, vigilance is required. In this sense, we invite the population to monitor their state of health. As the Laurentides region has the capacity to respond to an increase in requests for screening tests, you should not hesitate to go to a designated clinic for a COVID-19 screening, “explained the director of public health for the Laurentians, Dr. Éric Goyer.
According to Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides, each person must be vigilant to protect those around them: “The population should not hesitate to take the test.” As announced by the Government of Quebec, the Laurentians region is participating in a diagnostic strategy massive to have a more accurate measurement of community transmission. “The more screening tests are carried out, the more the results will provide a fair portrait of the state of health of our population. The deconfinement can thus be better controlled,” concluded Ms. Landry.
