All non-urgent polyclinic services have been cancelled.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness said in a press release that all appointments to the general practitioner service are cancelled and the polyclinics will now focus on urgent cases and issuing prescriptions for people with chronic diseases.
Polyclinics have been reconfigured and the areas designated for assessment of people with respiratory issues have been expanded.
Special arrangements are in place at each polyclinic to receive patients with respiratory problems and direct them to the designated areas. The 24-hour routine polyclinic service at the Winston Scott Polyclinic will continue.
