Book Your COVID-19 Test

You have responded "Yes" to being a worker or resident of a high-risk setting such as long-term care homes, shelters or other congregate setting; OR a visitor to a long-term care home; OR an international student that has arrived in the last 14 days. Therefore, you are eligible for a COVID-19 test based on current provincial guidelines. 

Demand for appointments is high. We are sorry if there are currently few or no appointments available to book online and we kindly ask our community to:

  • Check the website again in a few hours. We release any appointments available for booking online as they are identified.
  • Please do not call Public Health when there are no appointments available to book online. Appointments available by phone are minimal and are reserved for community members with accessibility needs or who do not have access to the internet.

Please only book one appointment time slot below per individual requiring a COVID-19 test. This allows other people in our community to book appointments. If you need to cancel an appointment for any reason, or if you’ve booked more than one appointment and would like to cancel an appointment you do not plan to attend, click here

By booking your appointment online, you acknowledge and agree to receive your appointment information by email.​ Your personal information is being collected through this site by the COVID Assessment Centre you select, and will only be used to schedule your appointment and to send your appointment confirmation by email.
