The new direction from the Ministry of Health states that low-risk, asymptomatic individuals should not be considered for testing at Assessment Centres. Those who should seek testing at an Assessment Centre include:
o Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms
o People who 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
o Some who is a resident of or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit; and
o Those eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
What happens at the Assessment Centre?
You will be assessed by a nurse at the Assessment Centre and swabbed with the sample sent for processing. You will then be given instructions on how to self-isolate at home.
If I am tested at the Assessment Centre, how will I find out the results?
If I am tested, how long will it take to get the results?
This will vary depending on the number of tests being performed. You will be advised to remain at home in self-isolation pending the results of your test. Regardless of the results you must self-isolate at home.
