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 Tested - Now what? (revised September 22, 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
