The ATC Isolation Care Centers are located in Fort McMurray and Fort Chipewyan. Clients who meet the criteria for admission and have been referred by the community referral contacts listed below are accepted.
If you meet the criteria listed for your location and are not able to safely self-isolate, contact your community’s Isolation referral contact below. Your situation will be assessed, referring you to the ATC Isolation Care Center if needed. Travel arrangements may be available within the region or the Fort Chipewyan community only.
The ATC Isolation Care Center is not a medical facility. Individual assessments will be completed to ensure you are able to safely isolate. Individuals requiring medications, supplies, or treatments will need to make their own arrangements for these items. The ATC Isolation Center staff will assist you with monitoring your COVID-19 symptoms and connect you to additional supports if your illness worsens during your isolation period.
