The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de Laval has announced that a mobile COVID-19 testing clinic will be opening Wednesday June 10 in the parking lot of the Centre communautaire de Lausanne (455 de Lausanne) in Lausanne Park in Vimont.
It will be open 7 days a week from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm until further notice, but will be travelling to various locations around Laval. Anyone wanting to be tested can simply show up because appointments aren’t necessary, according to the CISSS.
A specially-fitted bus from the Société de transport de Laval (STL) is serving as the clinic in various parks around Laval. Future locations will be announced by the CISSS.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, our goal has been to increase the number of tests,” says Dr. Jean-Pierre Trépanier, director of public health at CISSS de Laval. “This mobile unit will allow us to test people who live or work in sectors that are most impacted by COVID-19 so that we can act more quickly to avoid the spread of the illness.”
