How to get tested for COVID-19

COVID-19 Testing

If any of the following applies to you, please call the COVID-19 Hotline and preregister for testing at a local Community Assessment Centre: 

  • If you are worried you might have COVID-19. 
  • If you have at least one symptom of COVID-19 such as cough and fever.
  • If you are at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through your employment.
  • If you are worried that you've been in contact with someone with COVID-19. 

Call the COVID-19 Hotline at 613-961-5544 (to avoid long distance charges in the Bancroft area, call 613-332-2825 ext. 2222). The hotline is available 9am - 5pm, 7 days per week.

Local assessment centres are operating in Bancroft, Belleville, Picton and Trenton.  Please call ahead to preregister in order to avoid lengthy wait times.

If your symptoms are severe, causing difficulty breathing, go to the hospital or call 911.

Please note: For those preregistering for testing at the Quinte West Community Assessment Centre - the location is moving from Quinte Health Care Trenton Memorial Hospital to the Duncan McDonald Arena at 8 Couch Crescent.  As of Thursday June 4, it will be open at the new location and will continue to be a drive through testing centre. Call the hotline at 613-961-5544 to preregister.
