[…] When one receives the fax, saying that such a person in a RPP or a CHSLD is COVID positive, it happens that there is no address on the fax, so in this time, the case is placed in “no assignment of territory”, or there may be an address that is the old address of the person,” explains Dr. Anne-Frédérique Lambert-Slythe, consulting physician to the Direction de santé publique de la Capitale-Nationale.
