St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland Assessment Centres

The quickest and easiest way to be tested is to call 905-378-4647 ext. 42819 (4-CV19).

Niagara Health’s COVID-19 Assessment Centres are prioritizing testing for those most at risk for having COVID-19.

Effective immediately, members of the public should only seek testing at assessment centres if they are:

  • Showing COVID-19 symptoms;
  • Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by their public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID Alert app;
  • A resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by their local public health unit; and
  • Eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.

Please Note: Beginning Monday, September 28, Niagara Health Assessment Centres will be available by appointment only. Learn more

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.

For safety reasons, Assessment Centres have separate entrances from the hospital. Those wishing to be tested for COVID-19 are asked not to arrive at the main entrance or through the Emergency Department. Please see maps below.
