Hours: 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. This assessment centre is an out-of-hospital clinic where people can be seen by a healthcare provider for COVID-19 related concerns, rather than have them visit an Emergency Department, Urgent Care Centre or their family doctor’s office.

There will be no medication or treatment onsite at the COVID-19 Assessment Centre. There is no testing done at this centre.
