All COVID-19 Testing Centres Changing to Appointment Only

2020-10-06

As of this week, all COVID-19 Testing and Assessment Centres in the EOHU region will be accepting clients by appointment only. Testing is now also limited to people who have COVID-19 symptoms or who meet other provincial eligibility criteria.

All centres except the Limoges centre have already made the change to an appointment-only system. The Limoges centre will switch to the appointment-only system starting Friday, October 9th (on October 7th and 8th, it will continue to receive clients without appointments).

The move to an appointment-only system, as well as recent restrictions on testing eligibility, have been mandated by the Ontario government for all testing centres in the province. The changes are expected to reduce wait times for people seeking tests, as well as reduce the backlog in processing test results at provincial laboratories.
