  • You have been recommended for testing by Toronto Public Health
  • You are notified on the COVID Alert app

Please note, we do not test for travel. Additionally, if you have had a positive test within the last 90 days, we will not repeat the test unless you are exhibiting new/different symptoms or are recommended to re-test by your Public Health Unit.

Testing in pharmacies is available if you do not have COVID symptoms. See the full list of participating pharmacies here. Please note, the TWH Shoppers Drug Mart DOES NOT offer COVID-19 testing.

What you need to know before your COVID-19 test

  1. When you arrive at the Toronto Western COVID-19 Assessment Centre, you will be registered in UHN’s Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system.
  2. You will then be tested by one of our clinicians.
  3. You will be able to check your test results online through the UHN COVID-19 Results Viewer, or the Ontario COVID-19 Portal website. If you have a myUHN Patient Portal, you will see your results in your patient account. Results are available within 12-48 hours.

Follow-up Call

  • If you test positive for COVID-19 (test result says "detected") you will receive a follow-up phone call from a UHN health care provider. This is so that we can check how you are doing and provide more information about your test results and what to do next.
