Worried about symptoms that could be COVID-19? There’s a primary care provider in the NHH COVID-19 Assessment Centre who can help

NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY, Friday, February 12, 2021 – Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

If you (or members of your household) have concerns about any of these symptoms, consider scheduling an appointment to be assessed, treated and tested by a primary care provider at the NHH COVID-19 Assessment Centre (CAC).

A local primary care provider (family physician or nurse practitioner) is available daily at the NHH CAC to assess and treat these symptoms, in addition to collecting specimens for COVID-19 testing, thanks to a collaboration coordinated through the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland.  Any care provided by the family physician or nurse practitioner at the NHH CAC, including COVID-19 or other test results, will be shared with your primary care provider.

The NHH CAC’s primary care provider option is specially designed to help you and your family by:

  1. improving access to care for symptomatic patients with rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment of symptoms that may or may not be related to COVID-19 (this includes but is not limited to COVID-19 testing); and
  2. providing care to those with symptoms that may or may not be due to COVID-19 in a safe, dedicated space outside of the hospital and local primary care providers’ offices where other potentially vulnerable patients are receiving care.

NHH’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre is open to serve you seven days/week, from 8AM to 4PM. Please call us to schedule an appointment: 905-377-7783. We are currently booking appointments within 24- to 48-hours of request.

For details on other COVID-19 testing options available in Northumberland through the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland see the OHT-N website, www.ohtnorthumberland.ca
