On September 24 Ontario Health released new guidance for COVID-19 testing. More is available here.

St. Mary’s Testing Centre is following this new guidance to prioritize testing for those most at risk for having COVID-19.

Ontarians should only seek testing at assessment centres if you are:

  • Showing COVID-19 symptoms;
  • 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
    • including individuals who require testing to return to school or daycare
  • A resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit
  • Eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care
    • including individuals who require testing to meet Ministry guidelines (i.e. prior to a visit in a long-term care home)
  • Required for international travel

If you have no symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit the Emergency Department for testing.

You can call the St. Mary’s Testing Centre at 519-885-9517 to book the next available appointment. If we do not answer immediately, please do not leave a voice message as we are unable to return calls. Please call back.
