Le contenu suivant est seulement disponible en anglais.

Health PEI testing clinics will continue with extended hours on Thursday, December 10.

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.

Health PEI will also hold a clinic at UPEI from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This clinic is primarily for students, faculty and staff in the 20-29 age group.

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.

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