ASSESSMENT CENTRES CRITERIA AND BOOKING

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use this self-assessment to help determine if you need to seek further care. If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately and advise them of your symptoms and travel history.

COVID-19 Assessment Centres, including new mobile locations, have been established by Ottawa Public Health. If you meet the stated screening tool criteria, you are asked to book online  for an appointment at one of the Assessment Centres at https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/shared-content/assessment-centres.aspx directly rather than an Emergency Room (unless you are experiencing significant trouble breathing, chest pain, fainting, or have a significant worsening of any chronic disease symptoms/or need Emergency services).

The COVID-19 Assessment Centres are out-of-hospital clinics where people will be assessed by a health-care provider and tested for COVID-19, if required. They are operated by our local hospitals, in partnership with Ottawa Public Health (OPH) and the City of Ottawa.
