Starting today, November 9, 2020, the Brockville Assessment Centre will be launching their new online appointment booking system. Hours for appointments will remain the same (Monday to Friday 10:00am – 5:30pm and Weekends 10:00am – 2:30pm). This new online booking system will help increase efficiency and decrease wait times to reduce the need for people to wait in their cars during the winter months.
Those booking appointments will still have to follow the eligibility criteria:
- All people with at least one symptom of COVID-19 provided that symptom is not from an existing condition (i.e., allergies). Please see the list of symptoms on the assessment tool.
- People who have been informed that they are a close contact of someone who has tested positive to COVID-19. You will be alerted that you are a close contact by Public Health or through the COVID Alert App.
- Those following Public Health, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Long Term Care guidance for targeted testing. This includes people in high-risk settings such as workers, residents and visitors to Long Term Care homes, homeless shelters or other vulnerable congregate living settings.
Other Assessment Centres in the LGL area will continue to use the same systems as before: https://healthunit.org/health-information/covid-19/assessment-testing-results/
