Assessment Centres

Three COVID-19 Assessment Centres are open in the Grey Bruce region (Kincardine, Owen Sound, Hanover) to help identify and triage patients with symptoms of COVID-19.


The Assessment Centres help expand hospital capacity to assess and screen patients who have symptoms of COVID-19, and free up Emergency Department resources to continue to safely manage the normal volume of patients.


Testing is available at the Assessment Centres for the following groups:

  • If you are showing COVID-19 symptoms;
  • If you have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by their public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID-19 app;
  • If you are a resident or worker in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by their local public health unit; or
  • If you are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care (i.e. before a surgical procedure, visiting long-term care). 


A self assessment tool is available for your reference here: https://www.ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus

If you are very ill, go to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911.


How does the Assessment Centre work?


Beginning Tuesday, October 6, 2020, testing and assessment is by appointment only.  Appointments can be booked online here, or by calling (226) 257-1500.  Due to high call volumes, it is strongly recommended that you book online unless you do not have internet access. 


When arriving at the Assessment Centre, follow the signage to the designated parking area.  Please do not enter the Assessment Centre earlier than five minutes ahead of your appointment time to ensure proper physical distancing between patients. 


Only necessary people should enter at the appointment time (i.e. the person the appointment is for, parent of child, necessary support person).

We appreciate your patience as staff work as quickly as possible to ensure patients are seen at their scheduled time.
