Respiratory Illness Triage Tent

We have established a Respiratory Illness Triage Tent for screening and testing.  We ask anyone arriving in person with fever, cough, sneezing, and sore throat to be triaged in the tent.  Please note: If you arrive needing medical care, you will be directed appropriately (i.e.: immediate attention to ED).  If you present and don’t meet the criteria for testing, you will be sent home to conserve resources.

Hours:

  • Monday – Friday 8am-7pm
  • Saturday – 8am-5pm
