October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Niagara Health is urging anyone who is due or overdue for breast screening to schedule an appointment. Women aged 50 to 74 who are at average risk for breast cancer can schedule a mammogram (without a doctor’s referral) every two years through the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP).
Getting tested for COVID-19
Niagara Health has re-opened its COVID-19 drive-through assessment centre at the St. Catharines Site. This will be in addition to the assessment centre in Niagara Falls.
Get tested for COVID-19 if you’re experiencing symptoms, if you’ve been exposed to a confirmed case or if you work in a setting with an outbreak.

We know how important visitors are to our patients who have been admitted to the hospital. There are a number of infection prevention and control measures in place for everyone’s safety, and these measures must be followed throughout your visit.
