COVID-19 Assessment Centre 

Updated September 28:

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

The Assessment Centre is located in the parking lot of the Erie. St. Medical Centre at 186 Erie Street, Collingwood and is staffed by physicians from the Georgian Bay Family Health Team. 

On September 25, 2020, Ontario Updated its COVID-19 Testing Guidelines. Publicly-funded testing will be available and easily accessible for those who are symptomatic, have had close contact with a confirmed case, or are part of an outbreak investigation. In addition, testing will continue to be available on a targeted basis for specific asymptomatic individuals who are at greater risk due to their health condition or employment, at the direction of the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.

Ontarians should only seek testing at assessment centres if you are:

  • Showing COVID-19 symptoms;
  • Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by your public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID Alert app;
  • A resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit; and
  • Eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.

Starting on September 25, you can get tested for COVID-19 at select pharmacies if you are not showing symptoms and are eligible for testing, as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
