COVID-19 Assessment Centre Moving to Tent at Erie St. Medical Centre

Updated May 20:

The Assessment Centre is now open Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., following the booking process outlined below.

Beginning Tuesday, March 31, 2020 the COVID-19 Assessment Centre will be re-located from the Hospital to a tent in the parking lot of the Erie. St. Medical Centre at 186 Erie Street, Collingwood and will be staffed by physicians from the Georgian Bay Family Health Team. This move will help free up much needed staff resources at CGMH and improve the flow of patients requiring emergency care.

Patients who have been directed by Public Health or their family physician to be tested will be contacted directly by the Family Health Team (FHT). Those who have been directed by Telehealth or wish to self-refer can contact the FHT at www.gbfht.ca for the COVID-19 waitlist. Alternatively they can call (705) 444-5885 to book a time to be seen.There will be a person on site to assist those who are having any difficulty with the registration process. Patients will then wait in their vehicles until the Assessment Centre contacts and registers them. At the time of their appointment patients will be contacted to proceed in their cars alongside the tent in the FHT Parking lot at 186 Erie St for testing. Assessment and testing will be undertaken while patients remain in their cars.

Testing protocols for COVID-19 will remain the same, following guidelines established by Ontario Health.
