Who can receive testing at Sunnybrook’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre?

Sunnybrook's Assessment Centre provides COVID-19 testing to adults and children over the age of one if they meet any of following criteria, as per the Government of Ontario's guidelines. Please note: Appointments are required, as our centre no longer accepts walk-ins. 

Adults:

  • You work or live in a place where there’s an outbreak and you were told by Public Health or your Infection Prevention team to get a COVID-19 test.
  • You work in a shelter, other congregate care setting or long-term care facility (or you must visit one and require testing to do so).
  • You were asked to get a COVID-19 test by the Ministry of Health or Public Health as part of other targeted group testing.
