Expanded COVID-19 testing clinic hours for Wednesday, December 9, 2020

Health PEI testing clinics will continue with extended hours on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.

Clinics and hours of operation are as follows:
•    Montague, Montague Legion, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
•    Charlottetown, Park Street, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
•    Summerside, Slemon Park, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
•    O’Leary, O’Leary Health Centre, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please note there is no Stratford clinic planned for Wednesday.  

Health PEI will also hold a clinic at Holland College from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. While this clinic is primarily for students, faculty and staff in the 20-29 age group, anyone who presents at the clinic will be tested. 

The Chief Public Health Office is asking individuals 20 - 29 years of age living in the greater Charlottetown area who live with multiple roommates in the same age group, work in a crowded setting with others in this age group (such as the fast food industry) or who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested as soon as possible. 

Individuals in this age group who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 can wait a few days to be tested to help reduce demand on testing clinics. People in this category do not need to self-isolate before or after getting tested while awaiting results. They can attend work or school.

Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested immediately and self-isolate until results are received. 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.

While every effort will be made to return test results as quickly as possible, people should expect to wait up to 72 hours to receive negative results through My Test Results, the negative test result portal. Anyone who tests positive will be called directly.

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