Central Health would like to advise that COVID-19 testing will be available to those who are close contacts of a confirmed case(s) and symptomatic individuals in the Buchans area at the following dates and times:
Buchans, Lakeside Academy
Monday, Dec 27 2021 from 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Tuesday, Dec 28, 2021 from 1:00pm – 6:00pm
These clinics are open to:
Anyone who is a contact of a case, or symptomatic and has not yet had an opportunity for testing
Please note that COVID-19 testing on day 11-13 after last exposure for fully vaccinated asymptomatic high risk contacts of cases is no longer required.
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.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
