Sudbury Health Sciences North updater on COVID-19

Please see the updated information below as part of our COVID-19 Media Bulletin for March 13.

 HSN has no admitted patients who have tested positive for COVID-19.

 We continue to monitor our situation closely. At this time, we continue with regular operations.

 If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, call Public Health Sudbury & Districts for medical advice at 705.522.9200 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200).Be sure to mention your symptoms and your travel history, including the countries you visited.

 We ask that patients coming to the Emergency Department, especially those with suspected symptoms of COVID-19, do not take visitors with them. We also ask those coming to HSN’s Emergency Department for other issues to only take a visitor if it is absolutely necessary.

 Visitor restrictions have not been put in place in other parts of the hospital, however to ensure we keep our patients and staff safe, visitors who are not feeling well should not come to the hospital.

 As part of enhanced screening measures, we have additional triage at the entrance to our Emergency Department.

 As our patient volumes continue to be above 100% capacity, we encourage people to consider other care alternatives such as walk-in clinics for non-urgent medical issues.

 We will continue to refer all media questions on COVID-19 to Public Health Sudbury and Districts
