Community Mobile Testing Site

Mandate

Make testing available to the entire population.

Access

  • WALK-IN
  • FREE
  • Easy access by public transit
  • Have your health insurance card and your driver’s licence with you, if available. If you don’t have a health insurance card or another piece of ID, you can still get tested.
  • Children: we test children
    • For children under the age of 4, one accompanying adult per child is required. 
      Examples: 
      - Your two children, ages 3 and 6, must be tested. In this case, you would only need one accompanying adult since the second child is over the age of 4.  
      - If both your children are under the age of 4, you would need one accompanying adult per child. In this case, you would need two adults.
