Date: Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Before attending, residents should remember:
· Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should attend one of the hospital-based assessment centres for testing, rather than attend the mobile location.
· Please wear a non-medical mask when you arrive.
· Depending on their risk of exposure, residents attending the mobile testing location may need to self-isolate at home for 14 days following their test or until their results come back negative.
· Results will be available online for anyone with a green Health Card.
Mobile testing across Peel is made possible through a partnership between Ontario Health (Central), Region of Peel, Peel Public Health, Peel Paramedics, primary care, community partners and hospital partners like Headwaters Health Care Centre, Trillium Health Partners and William Osler Health System.
