[MC – June 15, 2020] Peel Region had launched its first mobile pop-up centre June 10th to help make COVID19 testing more accessible to communities and high-risk workplaces.
Peel Region advises that if you have no symptoms but are either a close contact of someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 or work in a high-risk setting you should come for mobile testing. If you’re experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 you should attend one of the following listed hospital-based assessment centres for testing.
The location of pop-up testing centres will vary. Peel Region will update the location when there are changes.
Tuesday, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Albion Bolton Community Centre
150 Queen St. South, Bolton
Friday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Meadowvale Community Centre
6655 Glen Erin Dr., Mississauga
Peel Public Health is not an assessment centre and testing is not provided at their offices. Each assessment centre website provides details on testing criteria, location and hours.
An OHIP card is not required for a test. It’s a free service.
Due to high demand, you might have to wait or come back later. Everyone who needs to be tested, will be tested.
Before you visit an assessment centre, check if:
- The centre is open.
- An appointment is required.
- There’s a drive-through option.
- They will test small children or babies.
- Information about your condition is needed (pre-screening).
Access more information from the Ontario government about visiting an assessment centre.
If you need urgent care, call 911 or visit the emergency department.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie also posted the information on her social media accounts.
