UPDATE TO COVID-19 Testing in Elgin

Over the weekend, Premier Doug Ford announced :
" If you are worried you have COVID-19, or that you’ve been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, even if you’re not showing symptoms, please go get a test...You will not be turned away, you don’t need an appointment, just show up.”

Today, many of you may have already been contacted by patients or acquaintances asking how to get a test. Local partners have been reviewing this change to plan for how this could be implemented locally.

This afternoon, you may have seen an announcement by STEGH that people can now call directly to book an appointment at our Assessment Centre.

Please review the updated (May 14, 2020) symptom list if you are not familiar with it as this has been recently updated/expanded.
