COVID-19 Assessment Centres

When should you come to a THP COVID-19 Assessment Centre?

The Government of Ontario has updated the COVID-19 testing guidelines for assessment centres across the province. We no longer accept walk-in assessments and appointments can be made using our online appointment booking tool .

Based on these guidelines, you should get tested at a THP assessment centre only if you:

  • You are showing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been exposed to a confirmed case, as notified by your public health unit or the COVID Alert app
  • Are a resident or worker in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified by your local public health unit
  • Belong to a specific group outlined in guidance from the Chief Medical Officer of Health

Do not go to a pharmacy if any of the situations above apply to you.

We are unable to test all members of a single family or household unless they meet the updated provincial testing criteria. If you need a COVID-19 test for a child younger than 1 year old, please visit your nearest Emergency Department to be tested.

Asymptomatic individuals who qualify under the province’s testing criteria are strongly encouraged to book an appointment at a participating pharmacy or community testing site . This includes those who require testing for long-term care home visits.

Testing for Travel

After December 11, 2020, THP will no longer offer COVID-19 tests for travel, including domestic and international trips. This is change is based on updated guidance from the Government of Ontario.

Some commercial COVID-19 testing services may test travellers for a fee. If you require a test for travel, you can explore these options in your community.

Please consult your travel carrier’s guidelines and the Government of Canada travel website for requirements related to your destination. If a COVID-19 test is required, budget ample time for testing and to receive results before your departure.

THP offers two convenient options to book a COVID-19 test at our assessment centres. Tests are provided to people who meet provincial testing criteria . Please choose the test option that is right for you.
