HPHA expanding COVID-19 assessment centre hours in Stratford
Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) is expanding the hours of its assessment centre in Stratford, Ont., according to a release.
Starting Monday, the centre, located at the Stratford Rotary Complex, will operate Monday through Friday from 9:15 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
HPHA says the change is to reflect a higher volume of people seeking tests.
If you are worried you have COVID-19 or have been exposed, you can self-refer for a test and you can also get tested if you are not showing symptoms and:
- Your public health unit or the COVID Alert app notifies you that you have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus.
- You live or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified by your local public health unit.
- You belong to a specific group outlined in guidance from the Chief Medical Officer of Health, such as workers or visitors of long-term care homes, farm workers, etc.
HPHA is also reminding people that tests for travel cannot be accommodated at the Assessment Centre. In order to receive a COVID-19 test for outbound international travel and to receive a valid travel certificate, you must pay for a private COVID-19 test.
