COVID-19 Testing Clinics

COVID-19 Testing Clinics

Important: change in the conditions for getting tested. Testing clinics are no longer open to the general public. Please stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

Do not show up to a testing clinic if you are not in one of the groups below.

  • Symptomatic individuals in the following groups: hospitalized patients, Emergency Department patients, healthcare workers in contact with users, staff, and residents, workers providing essential care and visitors in hospitals and communal housing sites, outpatients under consideration for treatment for COVID-19, and people who are homeless;
  • members of indigenous communities and people working with indigenous communities;
  • individuals living in high-risk settings with confirmed or suspected outbreaks;
  • Asymptomatic users of the healthcare network according to provincial guidelines or directives.

If you do not belong to one of the priority groups

  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms use the  rapid tests available at pharmacies. If tests are not available, you are considered as having COVID-19 and must self-isolate.

Safety measures

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect healthcare workers and users, it is extremely important that you comply with the instructions that you receive when you arrive.

All of the necessary safety precautions relating to the designated COVID-19 Testing Clinic have been taken, as determined by the CIUSSS’s healthcare professionals and health authorities.

To ensure the highest level of safety, CIUSSS West-Central Montreal has also arranged for security guards to be present on-site.

Notice to Travelers

The Government of Quebec does not take care of pre-travel screening tests. Confirmation of a screening test result from one of our testing clinics will not specify the type of test you received and therefore may not be eligible for the purposes of boarding a plane and entering a foreign country.

We encourage you to consult the following list of private laboratories that are able to provide tests and results for travelling purposes:   https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/instructions-for-travellers-covid19/
