Assessment

In response to the rapidly spreading and highly transmissible Omicron variant, the Ontario Government has updated its COVID-19 testing and isolation guidelines. Effective December 31, 2021 PCR testing is only available for high-risk individuals who are symptomatic or who are at risk of severe illness from COVID-19. This includes people with serious medical conditions as well as workers in healthcare, long-term care homes and other congregate settings (excluding post-secondary housing residences).

Before seeking out a COVID-19 test, please read the full list of individuals eligible for a PCR test per Ontario Government guidance. Individuals may be asked to show proof of eligibility before a COVID-19 test is administered.
