COVID-19 – Discontinuation of hospital visits, isolation in case of contact with COVID-19 positive persons and other reminders
Îles-de-la-Madeleine, December 30, 2021 – The CISSS des Îles would like to inform the population that from now on, as a preventive measure, visits to the hospital are prohibited, except for caregivers.
It is important to know that it is still possible for a family caregiver to come and support their loved ones in a care setting, at the rate of one family caregiver at a time per user, for a maximum of two family caregivers per 24 hours.
The CISSS des Îles team is asking for the public’s help in protecting our users and we are asking all those who have to come to the hospital for a medical appointment or follow-up or for an emergency to leave the establishment immediately after their appointment and to minimize their movements in the hospital.
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.
