Update on COVID-19 testing in Haldimand and Norfolk

To The Haldimand Press

In alignment with provincial direction, all COVID-19 assessment centres will go to appointment-ONLY, effective immediately. Those in need of a test should contact an assessment centre directly.

COVID-19 tests are only available for people who:

1.    Have COVID-19 related symptoms;

2.    Have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, as informed by the Health Unit;

3.    Are a resident or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified and informed by the Health Unit; or

4.    Are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.

COVID-19 testing will no longer be available at the Delhi Community Health Centre.

“While we’re happy to see the NGH testing centre made available to residents, we’re disappointed that the provincial direction for assessment has led the Delhi Community Health Team to move away from testing and focus on primary care,” says Kristal Chopp, Chair of the Board of Health. “On behalf of the entire community, I want to thank the staff in Delhi for stepping up right from the start, and for the tremendous amount of work they’ve done over the last number of months. Their support has been invaluable in the fight against COVID-19.”
