COVID-19 Testing

You are eligible for COVID-19 testing if you:

  • you live and/or work in high-risk settings, identified as:
    • Hospitals
    • Long-Term Care
    • Retirement homes
    • Congregate living settings

When coming for an appointment, do not arrive more than 5 minutes prior to your appointment to reduce congestion in the parking area, and bring your own mask. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so using the confirmation e-mail you received at the time of booking.
