Orleans Covid Testing Center Information

The following is an update from the Office of Councillor Luloff, City of Ottawa.

Hello everyone,

I am emailing this afternoon to provide you with some information from our office regarding the Covid-19 Testing Center that will be opening at the Ray Friel Center in Orleans.

Having worked alongside the Montfort Hospital, Ottawa Public Health and City Staff for the last few weeks securing a site suitable for testing in Orléans, the separation of public accessing recreation centre, school and those being tested is a priority consideration for the project team.

Great progress is already happening on the project since the announcement on September 21st 2020. Here is what we know:

  • Rink 3 of the Ray Friel Rec Complex will become the COVID Testing Centre managed and operated by Hôpital Montfort.
  • This location was chosen after evaluating several sites in Orléans based on a number of criteria, such as the need for a safe environment, the size of the available space, the accessibility of the site for people with reduced mobility, the proximity of public transit services, free parking, the scope of the redevelopment work required, rental costs, etc.
  • A new door will be added to the Ray-Friel Recreation Complex to allow people who come to the clinic to enter and leave without any contact with people using the other services of the recreation complex, which will remain open. The access to the rest of the complex will be blocked off for patients of the clinic. Even the ventilation system for this skating rink will be independent and completely separate from the rest of the complex.
  • Construction has already started
  • Adults and children as young as six months of age will be able to receive care and be tested for COVID-19
  • The site will be operated by staff and physicians from Montfort, as well as primary care physicians.
  • City of Ottawa Traffic experts, overseen by the Montfort Hospital project team, will evaluate and review traffic flow and patterns to recommend optimal, safe access.

Recommendations for testing include:

  • Symptomatic persons:

o   Anyone showing signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Asymptomatic (not showing symptoms) persons with close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 positive case:

o   No earlier than 5 days after initial close contact* with a confirmed case.

o   Timing of testing is important as a person may be incubating (the time it takes for the disease to develop) and COVID-19 may not show on the test result if tested too early.

o   Even if after waiting 5 days to be tested the result is negative, it remains important to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days from exposure to the confirmed case. You will be helping to protect others because COVID-19 can develop up to 14 days after exposure even if you receive a negative test result.

For more details please refer to the Ottawa Public Health website:https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/shared-content/assessment-centres.aspx

More details will follow on the planned opening in October, including hours of operations. The objective is to ensure minimal disruption to the school, recreation complex and library. We will use every channel available to support Hôpital Montfort’s communication plan related to the testing site in Orléans.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.

Thank you and have a great day.

Summer and risk of theft in vehicles – L’été arrive ainsi que le risque de vol dans les véhicules

A message from the Ottawa Police. Le français suit.

Learn how to reduce the risk of Thefts in Vehicles, just in time for summer!

(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Service would like to remind the public that, with summer weather just around the corner, so is the risk of theft from vehicles. Residents are reminded to remove anything of value from their vehicle.

“Thieves typically look for an unlocked or locked vehicle showing valuables, and once they gain entry, they go through the entire car, including the trunk,” said Cst. Stephanie Lemieux, Centretown Community Police Officer.  “It isn’t enough to hide items in the console or under the car seats because the thieves are just that thorough.”

In the event you notice someone acting suspicious around parked vehicles or if you see someone trying car doors – please call police and report it. Make the right call<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/contact-us/Online-Reporting.aspx?_mid_=2026>. “Even if your car is broken into and nothing is taken, it still needs to be reported to police,” added Cst. Lemieux.

Find out more on how to reduce the risk of being the victim of a theft from vehicle with our Safety and Crime Prevention Programs on our website at ottawapolice.ca<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/safety-and-crime-prevention/theft-from-vehicles.aspx>, or contact your local community police officer<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/contact-us/Community-Police-Centres.aspx> for more information. Download an AVR (All Valuables Removed<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/safety-and-crime-prevention/Prevent-Theft-From-Vehicles.aspx>) card to display in your parked vehicle.

The cards are displayed by vehicle owners on the inside of the driver’s side window to display the message, “All Valuables Removed” – letting would-be-thieves know not to bother searching the vehicle and alerting others to take the same precautions.
Anyone with information regarding a theft from a vehicle or any other crime is asked to call the Police Reporting Unit at 613-236-1222, extension 7300.

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers, toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.

Réduisez au minimum la possibilité du vol dans votre voiture, avant l’été’!

Ottawa — Le Service de police d’Ottawa tient à rappeler à la population qu’avec la chaleur de l’été à nos portes, nous revient un risque accru de vols dans les véhicules. Il est ainsi conseillé aux résidents de retirer de leurs véhicules les articles auxquels ils tiennent.

« Habituellement, les voleurs recherchent un véhicule verrouillé où non verrouillé ayant des objets de valeur visibles, et lorsqu’ils s’y introduisent, ils fouillent l’auto de fond en comble, y compris le coffre, » indique Stéphanie Lemieux, agente de police communautaire du centre-ville. « Il ne suffit pas de dissimuler ses objets dans la console ou sous les sièges, puisque les voleurs sont vraiment minutieux. »

Si jamais vous remarquez quelqu’un agissant de manière suspecte aux alentours de véhicules garés, ou si vous voyez quelqu’un tester les portières de voitures – appelez la police et signalez-le. Faites appel au bon endroit<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/fr/contact-us/Contact-Us.aspx?_mid_=15421>. « Et si des malfaiteurs s’introduisent dans votre voiture sans rien emporter, l’incident doit quand même être signalé aux autorités, » ajoute l’agente Lemieux.

Renseignez-vous pour savoir comment amoindrir le risque d’être victime de vol dans votre véhicule par la voie des programmes de sûreté et prévention du crime proposés sur notre site web, le ottawapolice.ca<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/fr/safety-and-crime-prevention/theft-from-vehicles.aspx>, ou prenez contact avec l’agent de police communautaire<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/fr/contact-us/Community-Police-Centres.aspx> de votre quartier pour plus de détails. Téléchargez un carton OVR (Objets de valeur retirés<https://www.ottawapolice.ca/fr/safety-and-crime-prevention/Prevent-Theft-From-Vehicles.aspx>) pour l’afficher dans votre véhicule garé.

Les propriétaires de véhicules peuvent apposer le carton d’avertissement à l’intérieur de la vitre du côté du conducteur pour afficher le message, « Objets de valeur retirés » – indiquant aux voleurs potentiels que ce n’est pas la peine de fouiller le véhicule, tout en invitant leurs concitoyens à adopter les mêmes précautions.

Toute personne ayant des renseignements portant sur un vol dans un véhicule, ou tout autre crime, est priée de communiquer avec l’Unité du signalement à la police en faisant le 613-236-1222, poste 7300.

Vous pouvez fournir anonymement des renseignements par la voie d’Échec au crime en composant sans frais le 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) ou en téléchargeant gratuitement l’appli de la Police d’Ottawa.
