Note from Hopital Glengarry Memorial Hospital:
We know that COVID-19 is scary, there are a lot of unknowns and things are changing by the minute. It is imperative that we follow Ministry Guidelines and self-isolate, social distance, wash our hands, and don’t touch our faces.

PLEASE, BE HONEST WITH the Screener when you call an ambulance or approach a hospital for help. Be truthful if you have a fever and/or cough and/or travel history. You will not be denied health care if you say yes. You WILL BE TREATED.

Please remember that it's not just your life that is in danger, but also those of the workers at the health care facility. We need to know your accurate symptoms so that we can protect our staff and other patients appropriately.

Be truthful. We won’t judge. We will be more than happy to treat you in the most appropriate area of the hospital donning our most appropriate PPE equipment. Thank you!
