St. Joe's Mountain COVID-19 Testing Centre at Mohawk College is only permitted to test those who fall within the Ontario provincial guidelines. The Testing Centre only tests those with symptoms, with direct and/or close contacts as advised by a Public Health unit, and/or those directed by a Public Health unit for other reasons to help control the spread of the virus.

The Testing Centre does not provide any swabs or testing required for travel or to attend/participate/gain entry to public events (i.e. sporting events, concerts, etc.). Please go to a pharmacy or lab offering asymptomatic testing.

Proof of full vaccination expedites entry to public events. Click here to make a vaccination appointment or to learn more.
