ON, QC postsecondary institutions wind down COVID-19 centres, testing sites due to decreased need

July 23, 2021
Several postsecondary institutions across Ontario and Quebec have announced that they are winding down the COVID-19 related field hospitals, vaccination centres, and testing sites that were set up on their campuses as the need for these facilities decreases. St Clair College’s Sportsplex field hospital and vaccination clinic has been dismantled and returned to its former use as a basketball court. A mass vaccination clinic located at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus will be closing on July 27 as vaccines become more easily accessible at other locations and vaccination rates increase. A vaccination clinic at Lakehead University will also be closing due to a drop in appointments, and McGill University’s Health Centre’s testing clinic has closed due to a reduction in number of daily tests.
