COVID-19 Booking

Effective January 14th, 2022: New Testing Criteria is now in place.  Please ensure you meet criteria to qualify for a Covid PCR test. If you DO NOT meet criteria, you may be turned away from receiving a test.

Due to increasing COVID-19 cases there is a significant delay booking a PCR test and receiving results.

If you are unable or do not meet criteria for a PCR test and have symptoms, consider yourself COVID-Positive and self-isolate until a test becomes available or your isolation period has ended.

Please review Public Health guidelines to determine your isolation requirement. Follow the instructions found at: simcoemuskokahealth.org

Due to our limited capacity we cannot guarantee a response to voicemails or emails. ALL positive cases will be contacted.

Availability for a PCR test is being monitored and managed to ensure capacity for those who are eligible. For those requiring a PCR for a booked surgery, call (705) 526-7804 Ext. 253 and leave a message.
