Health Office response to COVID-19 pandemic

***Please note we remain open all year round and throughout the pandemic ***

The MSVU Health Office is committed to providing care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Update for May 2022: We are booking patients for either in-person or phone appointments, which allows us to serve patients no matter where you are in the province. If you have booked an in-person appointment but develop COVID related symptoms, please message the office or call the office to change your appointment to a phone appointment (if the Doctor feels you need to be seen, arrangements will be made to bring you in later).

We continue to write prescriptions and issue referrals as we would under our usual practice.

Learn more about Nova Scotia Public Health’s COVID-19 response and check for local exposure locations.

Patients are required to wear a mask while in the Centre. Please bring your own.

The walk in service comes to an end September 1st 2022.
