COVID-19 Assessment Centre Hours Extended

Windsor Regional Hospital is expanding the number of hours that the COVID-19 Assessment Centre at the Ouellette Campus is open.

Starting Wednesday, May 26th, 2020, hours of operation will be from 9am to 9pm (from 9am to 4pm). Weekend hours will remain unchanged for the time being from 9am to 4pm.

The Assessment Centre next to the Emergency Department has seen record-breaking volumes, with 237 visitors on May 26th. The previous day’s total was 163, which itself was a peak in terms of daily volume since the 103 people seen on March 18th. The number of visitors to the centre had averaged about 65 visitors per day before this week.

The higher volumes come after the Premier advised Sunday that the opportunity to be tested for the virus is now available to everyone.

The Hospital also says that additional tents were put in place Tuesday so that those waiting in line were not waiting under direct sunlight, while water continues to be offered to those in line amid this week’s humid weather.
