When to Get Tested

  • If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., cough, fever, difficulty breathing).
    • If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately. Tell them about your symptoms and exposure history.
  • If you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has or may have COVID-19.
  • If you require testing because you have been exposed to COVID-19 or for other reasons identified by the Government of Ontario. See COVID-19 test and testing location information to learn more.
  • If you require testing as part of Surveillance Testing for long-term care and retirement homes.
  • If you were tested at your workplace under rapid testing protocols, and tested positive you will need to confirm this test result at one of the local assessment centres and self-isolate while you wait for your results.
  • If you complete the online self-assessment and are directed to get tested.
  • If you are directed by local, provincial, or federal health authorities that you require testing.

Parents, guardians, and caregivers of children and youth should complete the COVID-19 school and child care screening daily, to help decide if they should or should not attend school or child care that day.
