The Management of the Modern Medical and Diagnostic Centre (MMDC) advises the general public of the temporary closure of the Accident and Emergency Department (AED) of the MMDC.
This closure is to allow for the sanitization of the department following the discovery of a person known to be COVID-19 positive in that area.
The individual, who was informed of their positive result on Friday September 11 and served with a Medical Officer Order, violated the isolation order, thus possibly exposing others to the COVID-19 virus.
All exposed clients (10) and staff (7) have been advised to quarantine and will be screened over the next five (5) to seven (7) days for COVID-19.
Accident and Emergency services will now continue to be provided utilizing the Georgetown District Clinic until the sanitization of the MMDC AED is complete.
