North Durham COVID-19 Assessment Centre opens in Scugog August 4

Posted On Tuesday August 04, 2020

The Township of Scugog has welcomed Port Perry Medical Associates to open a COVID-19 assessment centre in Scugog, serving all North Durham, with the North Durham Assessment Centre, effective August 4 at 12 p.m.

The North Durham COVID-19 Assessment Centre will be located at Prince Albert Hall, 19 Jeffery St, Prince Albert. The hours of operation will be Monday to Thursday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday to Sunday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Accessing the assessment centre

The COVID-19 testing is available for all individuals who have symptoms – even mild ones – and for those who are asymptomatic but request a test because they may have been exposed or have workplace risks.

To ensure an efficient process for all individuals and minimize the risk of exposure to people with COVID-19, testing is by appointment, through the online form. When individuals complete the online COVID-19 Assessment Form (covidswab.lh.ca), they will receive an instant response with the date and time of their appointment. Individuals will receive a phone call if their email is not valid. The team makes every attempt to reach an individual.

People without a computer or internet access can receive support to complete the form from Durham Region Health Department by calling 1-800-841-2729.

Individuals typically receive results from their test in less than 48 hours. However, if there is a large volume of tests, the wait time can vary and take longer. If at any time an individual is unable to find their test results through Ontario.ca, they can call Durham Region Health Department at 1-800-841-2729.
