The West Island Regional Health Board (CIUSSS) announced that since last Thursday, July 16th, there are no longer any active COVID 19 cases in the Lakeshore General Hospital.

In a recent interview, “we will be even more prepared for a second wave,” said Dr. Bernard Cyr, director of professional services.
