COVID-19

COVID-19 Assessment Centres and Testing

You can get a test 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.

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 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 follow up instructions if required-  see the Follow-up Instructions for Individuals Tested for COVID-19 (revised October 20, 2020) fact sheet for more information.

Please see the list below for details about 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

As of Friday, September 25, 2020, the pharmacy locations listed in the link below will offer free testing by appointment only to individuals with no symptoms of COVID-19. More pharmacy locations will make testing available in the coming weeks.

Individuals must follow all public health measures when going for a test, including wearing a mask, practising physical distancing, and frequent handwashing. If you are feeling ill on the date of your appointment, please stay home and re-schedule your test.
