Southwestern Public Health Service Closures

To our partners and residents in Oxford County, Elgin County and the City of St. Thomas: One of the most important steps we can all take to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus is to put distance between ourselves and others.

With that in mind, we’re doing our part by closing most of our clinics and classes. Until April 15, we will not hold prenatal, breastfeeding, food handling or dental services and TB testing. Sexual Health Clinics will continue with very careful safety measures in place, with the exception of our Tillsonburg clinic which will be cancelled until further notice. Our Needle Exchange Program will also remain in service with additional infection control measures in place.

Our staff are on site and our phone lines are open. If you have a general question about a program or service you use, please call us. If your questions are specific to COVID-19, call us at 1-800-922-0096 #9 and speak to a member of our infectious disease team.

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community as healthy as possible
