The Grey Bruce Health Unit is modifying private drinking water drop-off locations to further protect local hospitals and residents

In order to reduce the number of people visiting hospitals during the COVID-19 outbreak, hospitals will no longer be accepting drinking water samples. While hospital have long been a location for residents to drop off drinking water samples, the Grey Bruce Health Unit has worked with a number of local partners to provide new private drinking water drop-off locations in their place. These samples are couriered to the London Public Health lab for testing.



To ensure that residents still have access to locations to drop off drinking water samples for testing, Foodland in Wiarton, Foodland in Markdale and Sobeys in Kincardine have all volunteered to host drop-off locations. Additionally the Grey Bruce Health Unit building in Owen Sound will continue to act as a drop-off location.



Please see attached or visit our website for further details of locations and times.



The Grey Bruce Health Unit would like to thank the generosity of Foodland in Wiarton, Foodland in Markdale and Sobeys in Kincardine for agreeing to be drop-off locations and donating the space to host sample fridges.
