COVID-19 Assessment Centre

COVID-19 Assessment Centre Online FormCOVID-19 Assessment Centres Open for Durham Region Residents

Lakeridge Health's COVID-19 Assessment Centres provide screening and assessment for individuals in Durham Region who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. We also test individuals who have been assessed by the clinic and have met screening criteria.

Community members with potential COVID-19 symptoms who feel they need to be assessed for COVID-19 should fill out the online registration form. Symptoms include fever, new or worsening cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, runny nose and joint aches.

COVID-19 Assessment Centre - Information for Health Care ProvidersOnce you submit the form, you can expect to be contacted by the Centre to arrange an assessment, typically a telephone conversation with a physician. We are attempting to answer all calls within 48 hours, but due to high call volumes, this might be delayed. On the call, patients will be screened for travel and contact history and symptoms, and guided to self-monitor, self-isolate at home, come to the Assessment Centre or go to the Emergency Department.

Note: COVID-19 Assessment Centres are by appointment only. Please complete the web form to start the assessment. 

Only patients who meet certain criteria will be assessed for COVID-19 in the Centre. Patients who need to come to the Centre will be offered a booked appointment. This enables the hospital to provide the right care for patients, support the important principle of social distancing and prevent unnecessary visits to the Assessment Centre or Emergency Department.

If you show up to the Centre without a booked appointment, you will be directed to the online form and contacted if further assessment is needed. We are attempting to answer all calls within 48 hours, but due to high call volumes, this might be delayed.

Please Note: Due to high patient volumes, we will not be able to fit community members in on a walk-in basis. 

Patients who do not have symptoms should contact Durham Region Health Department at 905-668-2020 

If you require urgent care, please visit an Emergency Department or call 911 and inform them of your travel and contact history and symptoms.
