COVID-19 Assessment Centre
The safety of patients, visitors, families and caregivers is a top priority for Runnymede Healthcare Centre. We are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and continue to implement changes to protect the health and safety of our community.
In alignment with the Ministry of Health guidelines, we are only testing people who are symptomatic and are:
- Patient-facing health care workers
- Staff, residents, essential care providers, and visitors in hospitals and congregate living settings
- Under housed or homeless
Or people who are asymptomatic and are:
- First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities and individuals travelling into these communities for work
- High-risk contacts and asymptomatic/symptomatic people in the context of confirmed or suspected outbreak
If you do not meet the above criteria, and your symptoms are consistent with COVID-19, you are presumed positive and should follow isolation and/or self-monitoring guidelines.
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.
The COVID-19 Assessment Centre is open Monday to Friday, from 7:00am to 5:00pm and weekends 9:00am to 5:00pm.
