Islanders can now book COVID-19 testing appointments online

Islanders who require COVID-19 testing now have the option of booking their appointment online and receiving a scheduled test in Slemon Park in Summerside or at the Charlottetown testing clinic on Park Street..

“Requesting an appointment on-line will enable Islanders to more quickly and effectively schedule a COVID-19 test or make an appointment for a medical assessment of COVID related symptoms,” said Marion Dowling, Health System Joint Response Team co-lead. It is important for those using this option to wait for the COVID clinics to call or e-mail them back with a specific appointment time. Our goal is to have more scheduled appointments which may help reduce waits at the COVID clinics."

Drop in testing continues to be an option for Islanders. However, wait times will vary depending on the demand for testing.Testing services are evaluated on a regular basis and may change based on COVID-19 situation. Up-to-date information is available at Information about COVID-19 Testing in PEI.

PEI residents who are symptomatic may still request an appointment by phone by calling 8-1-1 or contacting their primary care provider. If you do not have symptoms but need to be tested due to work requirements you can call 1-855-354-4358.
