Avalon continues to monitor provincial public health protocols and adjust our work practices as needed, to ensure that when in-person services are possible, they are compliant. Staff continue to work remotely. We are checking messages on Avalon voice mail, 902-422-4240, regularly. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner response is to emergency rooms. Anyone who has experienced a sexual assault in the past 7 days can speak with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner at 902-425-0122 or proceed to Emergency for treatment and/or forensic evidence collection.
Avalon is temporarily unable to receive new counselling requests. We will be directing all therapeutic counselling service to those on the waitlist until we are able to estimate wait times.
