The Brockville COVID-19 Assessment Centre will be transitioning to an online appointment booking system. It will take some time to get the new online system up and running. In the meantime, individuals that meet the new COVID-19 Testing Eligibility Criteria can self-present to the centre on Monday, October 5 between 10:00am–5:30pm to confirm eligibility for testing and to receive an appointment time. There is no need to call ahead, and we anticipate at this time we can accommodate same day appointments, please watch our social media posts for updates.
The new COVID-19 Testing Eligibility Criteria includes those who:
- Are showing COVID-19 symptoms;
- Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by your public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID Alert app;
- Are a resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit; and
- Are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
Until the new online appointment booking system is implemented, the Brockville COVID-19 Assessment Centre will continue to operate with individuals self-presenting to confirm eligibility for testing and to receive an appointment time Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 5:30pm; and on weekends from 10:00am to 2:30pm.
The Brockville COVID-19 Assessment Centre is located at the Brockville Memorial Centre, 100 Magedoma Avenue in Brockville and is partnership between local Family Health Teams, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, and the Brockville General Hospital.
