UOttawa announces on-campus COVID-19 testing centre

August 31, 2020
The University of Ottawa has announced that it will be opening its own COVID-19 assessment centre dedicated to the on-campus community. The new centre will only be open to students, staff, and faculty members associated with the university until further notice, and will be located in a building that is easily accessible by foot, bike, or light rail. It will be offered in collaboration with The Ottawa Hospital and managed by a physician from the hospital. “Once the centre is up and running at full capacity, said UOttawa President Jacques Frémont, “the hope is that the uOttawa assessment centre will also help lighten the load carried by other testing facilities in the city.”  UOttawa  | Ottawa Citizen  (ON)
