Healthcare providers involved in the Huron Perth & Area Ontario Health Team are working together to provide COVID-19 assessment services to all residents. While some areas of the province are opening assessment centres, Huron Perth is coordinating a Virtual Assessment Model so that people can get an assessment from a trustworthy source without travelling and having contact with others.
* New - Testing is available now for the following:
- All people with at least one symptom of COVID-19, even for mild symptoms.
- People who are concerned that they have been exposed to COVID-19. This includes people who are contacts of or may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case.
- People who are at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through their employment, including essential workers (e.g., health care workers, grocery store employees, food processing plants).
Please follow the steps below if you require an assessment.
- Complete the Ontario government’s On Line Assessment tool
- If the online tool tells you to seek clinical assessment, contact the office of your family doctor for a phone assessment. If you do not have a family doctor, contact Huron Perth Public Health. It is important that you do not visit your doctor’s office without calling first.
- If further action is needed, you will be given directions by the assessor.
For those without access to a computer, contact the office of your family doctor for a phone assessment. If you do not have a family doctor, contact Huron Perth Public Health.
