If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, the Middlesex-London Health Unit recommends that you self-isolate and then do one of the following to determine next steps:


Get Tested for COVID-19

Testing is available at all COVID-19 Assessment Centres for anyone, especially if:

  • you have at least one symptom of COVID-19, even mild symptom(s)
  • you're asymptomatic but concerned you may have been exposed to COVID-19
  • you're asymptomatic but at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through your employment

Anyone with severe respiratory illness, or a medical emergency should go to the hospital or call 911 immediately. Advise them of your symptoms and any travel history.

Signs of severe respiratory illness include:

  • Shortness of breath/unable to catch your breath
  • Severe fever that does not come down with Tylenol/acetaminophen
  • Energy so low that you are physically unable to get out of bed or barely able and must rest again immediately

London's COVID-19 Assessment Centres

Assessment Centres are out-of-hospital clinics where people can be seen by a healthcare provider for COVID-19 related concerns, rather than have them visit an Emergency Department, Urgent Care Centre or their family doctor’s office. 

LOCATIONS

There will be no medication or treatment onsite at the COVID-19 Assessment Centre.
