COVID-19 testing and clinical assessment moving to Victoria Park Armoury

By Lindsay Advocate

Ross Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre, which provides COVID-19 testing and clinical assessments, will move to the Victoria Park Armoury starting on Tuesday, Jan 11. 

Appointments are available on-site Monday-to-Friday, excluding statutory holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

COVID-19 tests are by appointment only. To book an appointment if you are eligible, please call (705)328-6217. Due to current demand, there may be a delay in getting through or leaving a message. Please continue trying, and refrain from leaving multiple messages. You will receive a call back within 1-2 business days.

In addition to testing, Ross Memorial’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre offers clinical assessments to support community members with known or suspected COVID-19 infection in an effort to conserve needed capacity in our emergency department.   

Clinical assessments are intended for people with worsening symptoms, or who have been advised by a health care professional that they require an assessment and diagnosis for their symptoms. This is because their symptoms cannot be safely self-monitored at home, but they are also not experiencing severe symptoms that would require emergency care. 

Individuals who have been directed by a health care professional to seek a clinical assessment are asked to book an appointment through the same (705)328-6217 phone number. 

The Victoria Park Armoury is located at 210 Kent St. W. 

Ross Memorial Hospital has conducted nearly 60,000 COVID-19 tests since it began conducting testing in March 2020.
