COVID-19 Assessment Services Available for Huron Perth Residents
Released: March 24, 2020
Updated: April 23, 2020, May 26, 2020


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. 
  1. Complete the Ontario government’s On Line Assessment tool 
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Currently, Virtual Assessment Services are available during Family Health Team office hours and during after-hours clinics where available. Please do not show up at the office without calling first:
