Stay healthy during the holidays
Holiday schedule for Montréal’s health network
The holiday season is a time for festivities, and during which we tend eat more and sleep less. Hugs and handshakes foster virus transmission and infections. If you're sick or worried about your health or the health of a loved one, there are alternatives to emergency rooms during this time of year. Make the right choice!
To help you make the right choice, call Info-Santé or Info-Social at 811. Nurses and social workers are there to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
See the list to find a walk-in clinic where you can see a doctor, get x-rays or have blood tests, for urgent cases.
Think you have the flu or gastro, or want more information on carbon monoxide? Go to the Stay Healthy this Winter Website.
