Opening of a COVID-19 testing clinic at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, for those who have gone to or worked in bars

The Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre (IUHSSC) is happy to announce that as of July 20, a walk-in COVID-19 testing clinic will be open at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute. This new service offering is aimed more specifically at those (targeted age bracket 18-25 years) who have gone to or worked in a bar since July 1. This testing site is in addition to the multiple initiatives our institution has implemented since the beginning of the pandemic to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our communities.

Address of the Testing Clinic: 
Douglas Mental Health University Institute 
6875 LaSalle Boulevard, Verdun  H4H 1R3
Plattsburgh room, CPC Pavilion / Moe Levin Centre
Monday to Friday
8 am to 4 pm

This clinic, with a capacity of 140 tests per day, has been mandated to carry out mass testing, free of charge, to those between the ages of 18 to 25 years who have gone to or worked in bars. If you want to be tested, come meet with our nurse on site. The results will be available in a few days; you will be informed by email if the result is negative and by telephone if the result is positive.

The selected location will make screening more accessible to people closer to home and is easy to access by public transit. It is important to bring your health insurance card and driver’s license, if available.

We wish to remind you that regular handwashing with soap and water for 20 seconds, remains the most effective hygiene measure for preventing the spread of all infections.
