Towards a COVID-19 screening clinic at the Industrial Building? – The Weekly Journal


Although the Integrated University Health and Social Services Center of Mauricie-et-du-Center-du-Québec (CIUSSS MCQ) has not yet confirmed the news, it is now highly predictable that the Industrial Building will become the site favorite for a COVID-19 screening clinic.

Indeed, the Intercity Trampoline Club and the Ping-O-Max Table Tennis Club have been advised that they must pack up, while the Le Sagittaire Archery Club has been told that they are will not be able to move into the Industrial Building as planned.

“We finished yesterday at La Bâtisse,” confirms Martin Marcotte, coordinator and head coach of the Ping-O-Max Table Tennis Club. We put all our equipment away once the training was over. It was the request! We had training scheduled today and also tomorrow. The City of Trois-Rivières told us that it was a request from Public Health in this regard, indeed. ”

“We understand the situation. We are disappointed, but aware that all this is not easy. The city has always been behind us to support us and they are still working in this direction. ”

Same story with Le Sagittaire Archery Club. “The information we received from the City of Trois-Rivières was that the building was required by Public Health. We are grateful for all the efforts that the city has put in to relocate us and that the situation is exceptional. ”

Remember that the Intercité Trampoline Club of Trois-Rivières had to cancel its fall 2020 session in the “Recreational” section. Major repairs to the Church of Ste-Cécile had forced the Trois-Rivières club to move four of its trampolines to the Industrial Building.

It remains to be seen where the annual influenza vaccination campaign scheduled for November can be held.
