Testing at Niagara Health's COVID-19 Assessment Centres is available by appointment only.
Assessment Centres are prioritizing testing for those most at risk for having COVID-19.
If you are looking to be tested for COVID-19, please follow these steps:
You can also take the Ontario government’s self-assessment to receive a recommendation on what to do if you’re worried you were exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms.
A select number of pharmacies in Niagara are offering testing by appointment only to those without COVID symptoms. Please visit the Ontario Government's website for a full list of testing locations.
Our Assessment Centres are no longer testing individuals who are travelling outside of Canada and require a COVID-19 test. Learn other options for travel-related testing here.
Our Assessment Centres are available by appointment only to those who meet the criteria. To book an appointment:
Schedule a date and time for testing online.
Call 905-378-4647 ext. 42819 (4-CV19).
Staff at the Assessment Centre will return calls as soon as possible to schedule a date and time for testing.
If you are an Ontario resident, you will need to bring your Ontario Health Card to the Assessment Centre with you when you arrive for testing. If you do not have an Ontario Health Card, please bring another piece of identification.
Please wear a mask.
For safety reasons, Assessment Centres have separate entrances from the hospital. Those being tested for COVID-19 are asked not to arrive at the main entrance or through the Emergency Department. See below for maps to our centres.
