Book Your COVID-19 Test

Based on your response to the screening questions you are eligible for a COVID-19 test based on current provincial guidelines.

BEFORE BOOKING BELOW: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AND ABIDE BY THE ISOLATION GUIDELINES THAT APPLY TO YOUR SCENARIO

 I have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, what should I do?

If you  have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 - you need to self-isolate for 14 days and only leave home to have a COVID-19 test during that period.

  • If your test is positive, you need to self-isolate for 10 days from the date of your test
  • If your test is negative, you need to self-isolate for 14 days because it may take you this long to develop COVID-19

I have symptoms of COVID-19 and am NOT a close contact with someone who has a confirmed case, what should I do?

If you  have symptoms of COVID-19 and are NOT a close contact with someone who has a confirmed case – you need to be tested and self-isolate until you get your test results.

  • If your test is positive, you need to self-isolate for 10 days
  • If your test is negative, you need to self-isolate until your symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours
