Here is some information about the management of COVID-19 in the Magdalen Islands

Testing for COVID:

To get tested:

  • You can make an appointment by leaving a message at the screening center at 418 986-2125.
  • The volume is large and the lines are very busy. We ask everyone to leave a single message on our voicemail with a number where we can reach you at all times for a quick return.


To find out about our next vaccination clinics, you can visit (by clicking on the Remote region option) or call the vaccination call center at 418 986-2121 extension 8484 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Important: As of December 18, anyone over the age of 18 can get a booster dose and the interval between the 2nd and 3rd dose has been reduced to 3 months.

Hospital visits:

As a preventive measure, visits to the hospital are prohibited, except for family caregivers.

It is important to know that it is still possible for caregivers to come and support their loved ones, at the rate of one caregiver at a time per user, for a maximum of two caregivers per 24 hours.

The CISSS des Îles team is asking the population for help in order to help protect our users and we ask all those who have to come to the hospital for an appointment or medical follow-up or for an emergency to leave the hospital immediately after their appointment and to minimize their trips to the hospital.

The CISSS des Îles reminds you to always consult information from official sources.

New instructions for contact cases

We would like to take this opportunity to remind people who are currently in the Islands and who have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 to isolate themselves for a period of 10 days and to contact our screening center in case of development of symptoms.

To make an appointment, call 418 986-2125 and leave us a single message with your contact information, we will call you back as soon as possible. To ensure the safety of our clients, it is not possible to come to the screening center without an appointment.

New number for information regarding COVID-19

Leave us a single message with your contact information and the purpose of your call and we will return your call as soon as possible between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
