COVID-19 Testing Clinics

Get Tested

Complete the COVID-19 Self-Assessment and Referral Tool to help determine whether you should be tested for COVID-19.

You can complete this assessment for yourself or on behalf of someone else, if they are not able.

If the self-assessment tool determines you require testing, a booking clerk/Public Health Official will be in touch with you to book a date, time and location for your test.

  • If you cannot access the self-assessment tool, please contact 811.

  • If you feel very sick and are not certain an online assessment is right for you, contact your family doctor or nurse practitioner, or call 811. In a medical emergency, always call 911 or visit the nearest emergency department.

 

You can check your COVID-19 test results online. It may take up to 5 days for your results to be posted.

 

COVID-19 Test Results

 

Testing is available for individuals who meet the following criteria:

                 

  • If you are a close contact of someone with COVID 19 and DO NOT have symptoms, you may proceed to testing.

  • If you are a close contact with symptoms, you do not require testing.  You are considered a positive case. Please visit https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/public-health-guidance/testing/if-you-test-positive/ for guidance for positive cases

    • If you are a close contact with symptoms you should proceed to get a PCR test if:

      • You work in health care (hospital, long-term care, personal care home, home support, paramedicine).

      • You are a first responder (RCMP, RNC, career and volunteer firefighters).

      • You work with the Coast Guard.

      • You work in a correctional facility.

      • You work in or attend a day care, emergency shelter, transition house, or other housing program serving vulnerable populations.

      • You live in a long-term care facility, personal care home, community care home, or assisted living facility.

  • If you have symptoms but have not been identified as a close contact of a positive case it is recommended that you still get tested

As with the standard COVID-19 test, test results will not be available to patients at the point of testing. Staff performing tests will advise individuals how to access results online. All individuals with symptoms are advised to isolate.
