Assessment Centres

In order to meet the growing needs of area residents with medical concerns related to COVID-19, dedicated assessment centres have been opened.

Before visiting an assessment centre, individuals should first seek guidance on whether it is appropriate for them to do so. Ontarians can do so by using a online self-assessment tool.

The assessment centre locations are below. 

Please note: 

  • there may be lengthy waits at the assessment centres and your patience is appreciated.
  • If you have a valid Ontario health card, please bring it with you, as it will expedite your visit.
  • At the assessment centre, you will be seen by a healthcare professional who will provide you with the necessary care and instructions for follow up, if required.

The purpose of the Assessment Centre is to screen patients who have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. SMH asks the public to use the Ministry of Health’s self-assessment tool to help determine if they need to come to the Assessment Centre.
