There has been a spike in COVID-19 cases in the last week, with 106 more people testing positive. It’s the second-highest increase on the island.
Fifteen per cent more people are now infected in the borough than the week before, as reported by Sante Montreal’s website.
“I wanted to make sure I wasn’t posing any health risks to anyone I live with, because I live with my grandparents,” says Peter Alevizos, a Parc-Ex resident.
Alvizos said he has experienced minor COVID-19-like symptoms.
“I’m not too worried about my test, I have been in contact with people who said they’ve had far more worse symptoms and their test came back negative,” he said.
“We decided we would get down here as early as we can and see if we can get tested and sure enough it was exactly as we thought,” said Steve Catwell, Côte Saint-Luc resident.
The Catwell family was planning to get tested in Côte Saint-Luc, but say it easier said than done.
The mobile centre is located in Côte-Des-Neiges at the Bill-Durnan arena, at 4988 Vézina St. The clinic will be open until Tuesday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., before moving on to the next location.
