25 Apr Covid-19 Testing in Membertou
Our COVID-19 response team in Membertou has been working diligently to organize, communicate, and work with our partners at Nova Scotia Public Health, since learning about the exposure at the Membertou Sport & Wellness Centre.
Membertou Health and Safety has arranged with the province to set up a testing location in Membertou. This is wonderful news, as it provides capacity for more efficient testing for our area.
The COVID-19 testing location will be at the Membertou Entertainment Centre, beginning on Monday April 26, 2021 from 9a.m. – 9p.m.
The testing site will remain open as the ongoing primary testing location for the
area, for both asymptomatic and symptomatic testing.
Due to the recent exposure at our arena, Membertou community
members, and Membertou staff will have a specialized line for testing. The leftside
door of the Membertou Entertainment Centre will be for Membertou
community members and staff ONLY. This is to help increase testing and results
in Membertou. There are no appointments. Line-ups will be socially distant, and
we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in coming out to get tested. The Membertou
ONLY line will be open from 9a.m.- 9p.m, starting tomorrow Monday April 26,
Stay safe, and get tested!
