***IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFO & UPDATES***
Doctors and nurse practitioners, along with our partners in healthcare and government, have been working hard to help prepare Powell River's response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Please stay safe, vigilant and thoughtful of others for the best results.
With Community Partners, the Powell River Division has just opened a new clinic to increase local capacity and provide timely COVID-19 testing and assessment services to patients in this time of pandemic. The Complex Clinic is located on the upper level of the Recreation Complex and will be open for testing daily (by appointment only) from 8:30 am to 11:30 am.
In addition to information about the clinic this website now also houses a COVID Info Hub, which offers downloadable posters, a news page featuring all our current articles and many resources to do with COVID. A vaccine FAQ page will be coming to this site soon, too.
