GUELPH – The Guelph COVID, Cold, Flu Care Clinic located at 400 Southgate Drive is closing at the end of day on March 31.
Care for community members with COVID-19, cold and flu symptoms will transition to family physicians, walk-in clinics and pharmacies.
The decision to close the Guelph COVID, Cold, Flu Care Clinic was made following a steady few months of low volumes and stable COVID hospital admissions, states a release from Guelph General Hospital (GGH).
COVID is still prevalent in the community however, and those who feel unwell should continue taking precautions to help limit the spread of respiratory ailments.
“The COVID, Cold, Flu Care Clinic played a significant role in meeting the needs of the community during the pandemic by providing community residents a much-needed alternative to the emergency department and primary care,” says GGH CEO Marianne Walker.
Since opening its doors in March 2020 the Guelph COVID, Cold, Flu Care Clinic has cared for over 184,000 patients.
Patients requiring care for severe COVID symptoms should continue to seek care at the nearest hospital.
