COVID-19 Online Self Assessment

Are you concerned about your health during the Covid-19 pandemic? Not sure if that cough is just a cold or the virus? To relieve the added pressure on our hospitals there are other ways to seek help.

PLEASE DO NOT VISIT your local hospital if you have a fever, a new cough or are experiencing a shortness of breath.

Fill out the self-assessment above or contact Telehealth for medical advice first.

Helplines: A bilingual helpline is available to answer all questions for residents across SDG, Cornwall and Akwesasne. Residents can call 613-933-6282 ext. 3129. As always 211 is a 24/7 number people can call to access community resources.

In-Home Testing for Vulnerable Individuals
Residents who are 70 years or older or who have compromised immune systems or chronic health conditions should call EOHU at (613) 933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120.
Public health nurses are staffing the EOHU phone line 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. They will assess symptoms and provide instructions to callers. These could include recommendations to self-monitor, self-isolate or seek medical care.

Based on the telephone assessment, if testing may be required for an individual at higher risk, the EOHU will coordinate with the Community Paramedic Program to send a paramedic to the individual’s home to conduct an assessment and if needed, a COVID-19 test.

If you are having a medical emergency call 911
