The Sault Ste. Marie COVID-19 Assessment Centre has launched online booking for COVID-19 tests. Appointments can be booked through the SAH website at www.sah.on.ca. We ask that the public book their COVID-19 testing appointments online where possible.
The Sault Ste. Marie Assessment Centre will only test those who fall within the Ontario provincial guidelines.
Testing for COVID-19 is open to persons over 2 years of age or over who are:
- Showing COVID-19 symptoms
- Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by your public health unit or exposure notification through the COVID Alert app
- Residents or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by your local public health unit
- Eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care
If you are not able to book an appointment online, contact the Sault Ste. Marie Assessment Centre at (705) 759-3434, ext. 7152. The Centre is open 8 am – 8 pm, 7 days per week. Although the Sault Ste. Marie COVID-19 Centre has increased staffing, we continue experience higher than normal call volumes and call wait times due to increased contact tracing demands in our community. Callers can expect a delay of at least 1 hour.
We thank the community for their support and patience as we continue to make improvements to keep the community safe.
