Our Services

Some services at the Porcupine Health Unit are being scaled back to allow us to commit more resources to the response plan, and to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has meant many changes. The Porcupine Health Unit plays a significant role in protecting the health and well-being of our communities during the pandemic. As a result, the health unit has had to reduce many programs and services to focus on COVID-19. We are slowly resuming some of our services but how we deliver them looks different. 

Please call our offices or see our COVID-19: Programs and Services page (https://phu.fyi/covid-services) for a list of current services.
