WHO SHOULD VISIT A CLINICAL ASSESSMENT CENTRE?

You should book a clinical assessment if you know or suspect that you have COVID-19 and you: 

  • have been directed by your primary care provider or other health care professional; or 
  • are unable to safely monitor your symptoms at home; or
  • have worsening symptoms; or  
  • are at higher risk of severe illness

Patients who are at higher risk and receive a positive test result should contact a health care professional to be assessed as soon as possible. These patients should either:

  • contact their primary care provider;
  • call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000; or
  • visit a COVID-19 clinical assessment centre

Your appointment will include a health assessment, where you will be informed of the best course of action to recover from your symptoms. Please note you may not get a COVID-19 test, only those meeting provincial eligibility criteria will be tested. Please visit this site for more details.

If this is for a child under 2 years old, please go to your nearest hospital. Our clinic cannot properly assess children under 2 years old.

Antiviral Treatment (Paxlovid): Paxlovid is given to people who are at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19. Your risk of serious illness is determined based on a combination of your health, age, vaccination status, and an assessment from a health care provider. You might be at higher risk if you are:

  • immunocompromised (have an immune system that is weakened by a health condition or medications);
  • 70 years of age and older;
  • 60 year of age and older with less than three vaccine doses;
  • 18 years of age or older with less than three vaccine doses and at least one risk condition

Don’t delay or wait for your symptoms to become severe. Paxlovid must be taken within 5 days of the start of symptoms to be effective. Take the COVID-19 antiviral treatment screener to determine if you may benefit from these treatments OR book an assessment below. 

If possible, please bring with you:

  • Complete Medication List
  • Contact your family doctor to get your most recent eGFR & Creatinine levels

Please be advised, if you are a potential candidate for antiviral treatment, your appointment may take up to an hour. Please plan accordingly.
