COVID testing in Gander

Due to cases of COVID-19 identified in the Central Region, COVID-19 testing will take place in Gander at the Fraser Road United Church. Testing will be available to those who are close contacts of confirmed case(s) and symptomatic individuals in the community.

The following clinics will be available at the Fraser Road United Church:

Friday, September 24 from 2:00pm – 8:00pm Saturday, September 25 from 9:00am – 7:00pm

Sunday, September 26 from 1:00pm – 6:00pm

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 the level of possible COVID-19 spread in the community. Being tested is an opportunity to help protect the health of all residents. Being tested is an opportunity to help protect the health of all residents.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
