COVID-19

COVID-19 Assessment Centres and Testing

You can take a self-assessment to help you decide if you need a test. After you’ve been tested, get your results online

You can get a test at a local testing/assessment centre if you:

  • are showing COVID-19 symptoms
  • have been identified as a close contact, and have been informed by public health or by someone in your life who has tested positive or by an 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. See the Tested - Now what? (revised September 17, 2021) fact sheet for more information. See the locations of local assessment and testing centres below.

You can get tested at a participating pharmacy if you are not showing symptoms, and are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative as determined by the Ministry of Health or Ministry of Long-term Care or public health.

This includes:

  • Workers, visitors, and Government inspectors for LTCHs
  • Individuals who identify as Indigenous 
  • Individuals who are travelling into First Nation and Indigenous communities for work purposes 
  • Camp testing – until September 6th 
  • Temporary foreign workers

You can also get tested at a participating community lab if you are symptomatic (showing symptoms) or asymptomatic (not showing symptoms).

Please see the list below for details about how each assessment centre operates.
