Update on PARN Services during COVID-19

PARN is continuing to provide services during the COVID-19 pandemic and has implemented social-distancing practices in its office to allow for continuation of service to some of the most vulnerable people in Peterborough and the Four Counties. Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (namely fever and dry cough) should not come into the office for Harm Reduction services and instead call PARN’s Harm Reduction Outreach Workers.
