Public Health keeps contact with Assistant to Environment on water sampling and CHR at the clinic for matters related to medical cards. I wish to inform all community members to keep their medical cards updated and if your card has expired, please call 1-800-561-9749 and you will receive the form by mail. This is for the benefit of the patient should he find him/herself in an emergency situation.
