Due to the current labour shortage, CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS users in Granby and Bromont who require COVID-19 testing should present at the testing centres as of 7:45 a.m. to be given a coupon with a time slot to return later in the day for screening. Places are limited, and some users’ appointments may be pushed to the following day. The coupon system will remain in effect for the coming days to avoid lineups at the two testing centres.
