Ottawa Now – Renfrew Paramedic Service is doing ‘hundreds’ of at-home COVID-19 tests, launching a virtual triage assessment centre


Renfrew Paramedic Service has introduced at-home COVID-19 testing, with hundreds of tests already completed. If someone meets the criteria for a test, paramedics can do the swab in-home and send it off to OPH. They have also been approved to launch a virtual triage assessment centre with 24-hour access to medical professionals. Michael Nolan, the Chief of the County of Renfrew Paramedic Service, joins Kristy Cameron on today’s Ottawa Now.​
