Please note testing guidelines have changed in Ontario
People should only seek testing at COVID-19 assessment centres if you are:
- Showing COVID-19 symptoms;
- Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by your public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID Alert app;
- A resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit; and
- Eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care
Check the Ministry of Health website for select pharmacies offering COVID tests to those without symptoms.
*Due to high volumes, COVID-19 test results may take up to four days to become available. We are not able to expedite test results. Thank you for your patience.
