The Centre intégré de santé et de service sociaux (CISSS) de l’Outaouais confirmed that one of its employees contracted COVID-19. The CEO, Josée Filion, explains that measures will be taken to establish the contact this employee had with others in recent weeks.

To ensure the confidentiality of the person concerned, no other information was released by the CISSS de l’Outaouais. The Syndicat des professionnelles en soins de l’Outaouais (SPSO) has confirmed, however, that it is an employee from the Hull Hospital.

In order to reassure its employees, the CISSS de l’Outaouais has announced that a professional or manager will be placed as a resource to support them during the pandemic, at all times, and to respond to their concerns regarding the risks associated with COVID -19.

The PDG is asking for the cooperation of Outaouais citizens when they receive the services of CISSSO employees, in order to avoid any spread of COVID-19 through the health network.

The CISSS de l’Outaouais confirmed on Wednesday that 13 cases of COVID-19 had been confirmed in the region. To date, the CISSS de l’Outaouais says it has performed 1,667 screening tests, of which 667 are awaiting results. For each of the confirmed cases in the region, the public health department plans to establish contact with each person.
