COVID-19

COVID-19 Assessment Centres and Testing

You can get a test if:

  • you are worried you may have COVID-19 
  • you are worried you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 
  • you are at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through your employment 
  • you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19

You do not need a referral to get a test and you do not need a health card, but if you have one please bring it with you.

Not sure if you should get a test? Take the self-assessment tool to help decide.

No one who is symptomatic or who is worried they have been exposed to COVID-19 will be declined a test at an assessment centre (either through appointment or walk-in, per the processes of each individual assessment centre). 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. Please see the list below to see how each assessment centre operates.

  • You can find your COVID-19 test results by visiting this website. You need to have your OHIP number ready to check your results through the website
  • A health care worker will also contact you directly if your result is positive 
  • If you can’t access the website to see your test result, a health care worker can call you directly to provide your results, whether positive or negative
