COVID-19 is a unique strain of a common virus that is responsible for many colds and respiratory infections. Symptoms of this illness have ranged from mild cold-like symptoms to severe illness with fever, cough, difficulty breathing and pneumonia.
For more information about COVID-19, including total COVID-19 cases in our community (and in hospital), please visit Hastings Prince Edward Public Health.
The Ontario government has released an online COVID-19 Self-Assessment tool, which you are asked to use before booking a COVID-19 test. There is a version for students/parents/school staff and also one for the average adult. This self-assessment will help you determine whether a COVID-19 test is warranted. Please click here for more information about Who Should Be Tested For COVID-19.
Please Do Not go to the emergency department for the purpose of COVID-19 testing. Book an appointment at one of the assessment centres.
Please book an appointment at one of the COVID-19 Assessment Centres (Bancroft, Belleville, Trenton, Picton). Once you book an appointment through the online form option or by calling the COVID-19 hotline, you will be provided with instructions and directions (via email if you use the online form) for attending a local assessment centre.
