Online COVID-19 door-screening option now available at Aberdeen Hospital

Doctor
NEW GLASGOW, NS

Starting July 8, patients and visitors entering the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow will be able to complete an online COVID-19 door-screening assessment prior to entering the facility.

The online option can reduce the time it takes to enter the hospital by having people answer a series of questions online instead of at the door. People wishing to enter will still have to show their screening result at the entrance, but would not have to answer the questions again if they receive a PASS result.

This online option is an expansion of a pilot project that started with the Victoria General site in Halifax in April and has been gradually expanding across the province.

Anyone planning to enter the VG site, St Martha’s, CEHHC and Aberdeen can go to https://fastpass.nshealth.ca/ to fill out the screening assessment tool. The online screening is NOT available at other Nova Scotia Health facilities at this time.

Patients and visitors will still need to show their screening results (either from their smartphone or a printed copy) when entering the hospital.

In-person, on-site door screening will still be an option at all sites.
