Person With Flu-Like Symptoms Being Assessed at MCMH

  • by

A person presenting with flu-like symptoms earlier today (Mar. 16) forced a temporary closure of the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH). The patient visited the facility seeking care.

“Out of an abundance of caution, emergency services have been temporarily relocated to the Kingstown District Clinic while the patient is assessed,” a release from the Ministry stated.

The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment advises persons with flu-like symptoms to call ahead so an assessment can be made before accessing healthcare services.

A COVID-19 hotline has been activated for persons to use in case of emergencies. The number is 784-534-HEAL(4325)

The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment thanks the public for its usual cooperation and will continue to provide information as it becomes available.
