COVID-19 testing clinic hours returning to normal

Health PEI testing clinics will return to normal hours of operation starting Saturday, Dec. 12.

Clinics and hours of operation are as follows:

  • Montague Legion: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • Charlottetown, Park Street: 8 a.m to 4 p.m., seven days a week.
  • Summerside, Slemon Park: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week.

While the clinics will close at their normal times, Health PEI is maintaining extra lanes for patients at Park Street in Charlottetown to help handle drive through volumes.

The testing focus for those in the 20-29 age group will be on individuals experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.  

The Chief Public Health Office has reminded all Islanders to get tested if they experience any symptoms of COVID-19, and self-isolate until the results come back. Islanders are also encouraged to download the free national COVID Alert app, which will to let them know if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Please remember to bring your health card to testing clinics. All drop-in testing clinics and testing staff are working together to ensure individuals are tested as quickly as possible and no one is turned away.

In addition to the drop-in testing sites, individuals can also book scheduled appointments online.

People with questions can call the COVID-19 toll free number at 1-833-533-9333.
