Central Health would like to advise that due to cases of COVID-19 identified in the Central Region, COVID-19 testing will be available to those in the Bay D’Espoir area who are a contact of a case or symptomatic.

The testing clinic will be located at the Milltown Lions Club on the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm

  • Friday, October 8, 2021 from 10:00am - 4:00pm

This clinic is open to:

  • Anyone who is symptomatic

  • Anyone identified as a contact of a case

There is no need to book an appointment as walk-ins are encouraged. Individuals are asked to present to the clinic and remain in their vehicles until advised to move inside. Individuals are asked to remain patient, respectful and to expect some wait time depending on how many people show up at any given time.


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.


This broader testing is part of the public health investigation to determine how community members may have acquired their infection with the COVID-19 virus. Being tested is an opportunity to help protect the health of all residents.


Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
