COVID, cold and flu care clinics now also available in Picton

UPDATE DEC 9:  The Hastings and Prince Edward Ontario Health Team (HPE OHT) will now also host Cold and Flu Care Clinics in Picton as well as Belleville and Trenton.

The clinic in Picton will be located at the Prince Edward Family Health Team site at 35 Bridge St. Suite 1 in Picton and residents who need to see a primary care provider for their mild to moderate symptoms related to COVID, a cold or the flu can call 613-476-0400 Extension 201 to book an appointment. The Picton clinic will operate every Monday from 5pm to 9pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm (starting this Saturday) and closed on statutory holidays.

DEC. 5: The Hastings Prince Edward Ontario Health Team has launched COVID, Cold and Flu Care Clinics in collaboration with Quinte Health, Gateway Community Health Centre, Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre, and other health care partners.
The clinics are to help ensure people can get care while protecting hospital resources for those who require urgent care.
Clinics are available to provide afterhours care for people who:
• are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, strep, bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infection, cold or flu,
sinus infection, vomiting or diarrhea.
• have been unable to book an appointment with a primary care provider or have been referred to
the clinic by a health care professional.
• are unable to safely monitor symptoms at home.
• are at higher risk of severe illness, such as immunocompromised individuals regardless of
vaccine status.
The intent is to have these clinics available for the entire cold and flu season, or as long as they are
needed based on local trends. However, because of staffing challenges in the health care sector, hours
of operation and locations may change.
