Labs, Testing & Screening


  • Thank you for working with the Ontario Health (OH) Regional Leadership to continue to conduct testing. Given the pressures on the lab network, OH is working to ensure specimens being collected can be processed in a timely fashion.
  • OH is working with assessment centres on testing targets and will continue to monitor testing volumes daily and adjust as needed, in order to align with and support the Ministry’s guidance. There are no caps or quotas on testing consistent with the new guidance.


  • Continue to test according to the Ministry of Health’s new testing criteria
  • Anyone who needs to be tested per the guidance should get tested
