“The CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal will open a COVID-19 mobile screening site available without appointment on its territory tomorrow. The site will be located inside the Centre sportif Dollard-St-Laurent in the borough of LaSalle. This mobile site, with a capacity of 200 tests per day, is to carry out large-scale testing of symptomatic individuals and those with close contact with them. It will be open until daily May 17, from 10 am to 5 pm.
As of tomorrow, individuals in the target populations will be able to go to the mobile screening site at the Centre sportif Dollard-St-Laurent to be tested. Their results will be available within a few days. This mobile screening site is in addition to the multiple initiatives our institution has implemented since the beginning of the pandemic—including the two designated COVID-19 follow-up clinics in Lachine and Pointe Claire—to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our communities, and especially those individuals who are most at risk.
“This new initiative is the result of another exceptional partnership with the borough of LaSalle and its mayor, Ms. Manon Barbe. This mobile site significantly increases our screening capacity, and complements the screening clinic that has already been operating in Beaconsfield for several weeks now,” said Ms. Lynne McVey, President and CEO of the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal.
The CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal would like to thank the borough of LaSalle for making the Centre sportif available to us and for providing logistical support in setting up the site.
