NBRHC assessment centre experiencing high demand for COVID-19 testing

Posted on

Due to high call volumes and request for testing appointments, the North Bay Regional Health Centre’s (NBRHC) COVID-19 Assessment Centre is asking for patience and cooperation as our staff work to meet the community’s testing needs.

Ontario has updated its COVID-19 testing guidelines to prioritize tests for those who need them most. Individuals who meet the criteria must book an appointment by calling 705-474-8600 ext. 4110.

Due to higher demand, the phone lines are very busy. If you reach the voicemail, please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

The Health Centre’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre remains open (except statutory holidays) with adjusted operating hours between Friday, December 24, 2021 and Monday, January 1, 2022.

If you are waiting to get tested, please continue to self-isolate.

You can help ensure we continue to operate as efficiently as possible by booking with your closest testing location and not seek testing at multiple COVID-19 assessment centres. COVID-19 testing is also available at select pharmacies locations for asymptomatic individuals that meet criteria established by the province.
