WEST NIPISSING COVID-19 ASSESSMENT CENTRE EXPERIENCING HIGH DEMAND FOR COVID019 TESTING

[STURGEON FALLS, ON] –  Due to high call volumes and requests for testing appointments, the West Nipissing COVID-19 Assessment Centre is asking for patience and cooperation as our staff work to meet the community’s testing needs.

Ontario has updated its COVID-19 testing guidelines to prioritize tests for those who need them most. Individuals who meet the criteria must book an appointment by calling 705-753-3110 ext. 357. Walk-ins will not be accepted for testing.

Due to higher demand, the phone lines are very busy. If you reach the voicemail, please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

The West Nipissing COVID-19 Assessment Centre will be closed on December 27th, December 28th, and January 3rd to observe the statutory holidays.

If you are waiting to get tested, please continue to self-isolate.

You can help ensure we continue to operate as efficiently as possible by booking with your closest testing location and not seeking testing at multiple COVID-19 assessment centres. COVID-19 testing is also available at select pharmacy locations for asymptomatic individuals that meet criteria established by the province.
