Testing for COVID-19

  Information below is for medical staff (Physicians, Midwives, Dentists and Nurse Practitioners).

Island Health provides testing for people who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, and individuals who are concerned they may have been exposed to COVID-19. We do not provide testing and documentation for travel purposes. Travel clinics and some private labs provide testing and necessary documentation for a fee. You can find a listing of sites here.
