Clinic closed due to lack of staffing, Health P.E.I. says

COVID-19 testing will not be offered at its usual location in Montague this week, with a Health P.E.I. news release blaming a lack of staffing.

The Montague area has only one clinic a week for people seeking official tests, held on Thursdays at 14 Rosedale Road.

Health P.E.I. notes that a positive COVID-19 test result from a home test does not require confirmation from a testing centre, even if the patient would like to have a prescription for Paxlovid.

Eligible Islanders are encouraged to speak to their health-care provider if they wish to be considered for that combination of two antiviral medications used as a treatment for COVID-19.

If you don’t have a primary health care provider or can’t reach yours, you can call 811 to be screened and placed on the Paxlovid referral program, Health P.E.I. says.
