Testing and assessment

Take a screening test

If you think you might have been exposed to COVID-19 or if you have symptoms related to COVID-19, please fill out a self-assessment form that lists COVID-19 symptoms to get a recommendation for the steps to take, based on your condition. You can complete this assessment for your child or for another member of your family.

If you have any concerns, consult the COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool

Tests are available at all clinics with or without an appointment. We recommend that you make an appointment to avoid possible line-ups. Making an appointment will reduce your waiting time.

What to expect when being tested for COVID-19

When you arrive at the designated clinic, a security officer will validate your appointment and provide you with a mask that you will be required to wear until you leave. You will then be directed to the appropriate location and informed of the guidelines to follow.

When you are called to be tested, have your medical insurance card in hand. The nurse will ask you about your symptoms and will confirm your identity. Next, the nurse will perform the test by introducing a long-stemmed swab first into your throat, then into your nasal cavity to obtain a sample. It takes approximately 10 seconds to obtain an adequate sample. 

The entire process takes at most ten minutes if there is no waiting. 

 

You will be given your results within a week. Whether you tested positive or negative, you will be contacted with the result and the guidelines to follow, as required.
