The Jura is strengthening its system to fight against the coronavirus. He announced this Tuesday the creation of three consultation centers. They will open on Thursday in Delémont (rue de l´Avenir 33), Alle (rue de l’Eglise 5) and Saignelégier (Hôtel CristaL). People with symptoms related to Covid-19 must contact the cantonal hotline on 032 420 99 00 to make an appointment for a first screening. Doctors supported by administrative and nursing staff will then provide consultations and possible screenings. They will organize medical care if necessary. “The priority objective is to lighten the burden on the Jura Hospital and medical offices,” said Jura Minister of Health Jacques Gerber. He wanted to emphasize that these are not screening centers, but consultation centers. “The maneuver must allow space for other patients, especially those suffering from a chronic disease, in complete safety,” added the head of the Public Health Service Nicolas Pétremand. / msc
