Symptoms and Testing

As of 4p.m. April 28, 2023 the COVID, Cold and Flu Care Clinic at LHSC will close.

Individuals who require a COVID-19 test or medication such as Paxlovid or Remdesivir are encouraged to contact their primary care provider (Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner) or book an appointment at a participating pharmacy in the region. 

Individuals experiencing cold and flu-like illness should contact their primary care provider, or visit a walk-in clinic or urgent care centre.

Patients who are scheduled for elective surgeries or procedures will be assessed by their LHSC care team and advised if they require a COVID-19 test. Patients who require a COVID-19 test prior to their procedure will receive further instructions from their care team.
