Dear Clients of Diagnostic Services at the Atlantic Veterinary College: As you are aware, Canada must take action to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The University of Prince Edward Island is making decisions in response to the COVID-19 crisis based on the advice of our PEI Chief Public Health Office and Government of Canada Public Health Agency.

Diagnostic Services at the Atlantic Veterinary College is considered an essential service and continues to remain operational and committed to meeting your diagnostic testing needs. Employees who can work from home are being asked to do so. This reduces the number of people out in the public and in our institution. Our laboratories are being staffed based on workload and safety of our employees. We are hoping this does not negatively impact our turnaround times for reporting results but it may.

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. We are committed to providing you with high quality diagnostic test results.

Liz Dobbin
