Hearst can be added to the list of communities in our region with a COVID-19 Assessment Centre. The facility officially opens tomorrow (Tuesday) from 9 am to noon, and again on Thursday at the same time. The Assessment Centre is located at the back of the Medical Clinic next to Notre Dame Hospital. Nord Aski Family Health Team Executive Director Danielle Plamondon says the Centre is in a private area.
“It’s completely at the back of the clinic so there are no other services around there at all,” she said.
Plamondon adds that they are thrilled to finally have it open.
“It took us a while to set it up,” she said. “Of course like every other small community, we had issues getting Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and we had to wait before we could open up the Centre.
