Burlington’s Joseph Brant hospital is moving COVID-19 testing indoors.

This means the current drive-through testing at the hospital will stop after today (Nov. 2).

The move comes as the colder weather looms and to protect the safety of both the public and staff, according to the hospital.

Tests will now be conducted at Brant’s indoor Assessment Centre which can be accessed from the entrance on North Shore Blvd. Signs will be posted to help show the way.

The hospital asks that you arrive at your schedule time as parking is limited, and wait in your vehicle until the time of your appointment.

If you arrive without a vehicle, the hospital asks that you approach the door at the time of your scheduled appointment and wait outside until a staff member greets you.

You must bring your Ontario health card and the heath cards of any family members who will be tested. You also must wear a mask indoors that covers your nose and mouth, clean your hands and physically distance from others when waiting for your test.

Testing is by appointment only, and only for individuals who meet the provincial testing criteria. Children under one year should go to their family health-care provider for COVID-19 testing.

Appointments can be made by visiting covidtesting.josephbranthospital.ca or by calling 905-632-3737, extension 6550.
