Reminder - What to do if you have symptoms of COVID-19

Reminder of what to do if you have symptoms of COVID-19.  

Have symptoms of COVID-19?  Don’t go anywhere yet.  Stay away from others. 

If you have mild or moderate COVID-19 symptoms such as cough and fever:

  • You can do the online assessment. You can call your Health Care provider or Hastings Prince Edward Public Health at 613-966-5500; TTY 711; 1-800-267-2803 or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.  
  • You can self-refer to a local COVID-19 Assessment Centre by calling: 613-961-5544 (to avoid long distance charges in the Bancroft area, call 613-332-2825 ext. 2222). The hotline is answered 9am - 5pm, 7 days per week.  We will book an appointment for you if needed with an assessment centre in your area. Individuals meeting the Ministry of Health guidelines will be tested.  

If your symptoms are severe, causing difficulty breathing, you should immediately go to the hospital or call 911.

QHC is extremely appreciative to be working closely with several local community partners and municipal leaders as our communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.   This community-wide collaborative approach is aimed at meeting the health care needs of individuals in our community experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 in a way that minimizes the risk for our dedicated front-line health care providers and for the patients we serve.   

Quinte Health Care is taking a number of precautions to help minimize the risk to our patients, our team, and our community.  This includes screening individuals as they come into the hospitals and severely restricting visitors. Click here for more information.
