HIV Testing Day reminder

The public is being reminded that Monday is National HIV Testing Day.

“The Department of Health is taking this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of knowing your HIV status,” a government spokeswoman stated.

“Talk with your physician about being tested. It is recommended that HIV testing be included as a part of everyone's regular health routine to keep you and our community healthy.”

The spokeswoman added that free and confidential testing is available at the Communicable Disease Control Clinic at 67 Victoria Street.

Jeanne Atherden, the Minister of Health and Seniors, also reminded the public that testing is available all year and added, “so remember to get tested and know your status”.
