This pop-up testing site serves residents who face barriers accessing other testing locations. This response extends well beyond testing-only to include access to other social supports including food, housing and health education.
Residents who meet the testing criteria and who don't have a car, experience language barriers, or who need additional supports to self-isolate are encouraged to book an appointment by calling 613- 288-5353. This number is answered from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday. This number is not available over the weekend.
If you need to cancel your appointment, you may do so by calling 613-288-5353.
Residents who do not experience similar barriers are encouraged to access other testing sites in Ottawa.
Testing is available for anyone older than 6 months of age.
You do not need to have an OHIP card to be tested, but if you have one, please bring it.
All patients must wear a mask.
Please follow all signage while attending your appointment. The safety of you and the health care providers is our highest priority.
