Have COVID-19 symptoms?

    To get tested:

    1) Visit the Assessment Centre at 1001 Grand Avenue West (Chatham) in-person to book your appointment with one of our booking clerks – this may be your fastest route to a test

    Waiting for your test results?

    CK Public Health will no longer be notifying asymptomatic patients (those showing no symptoms at time of COVID-19 testing) of their negative test results by telephone. If you have not received a phone call from CK Public Health within seven (7) business days of having a COVID-19 test, your test result was negative. View your results online here.

    Feeling Unwell?

    If feeling unwell at any time (fever, new cough or difficulty breathing), return home and begin self-isolating immediately.

    If you need to seek health assessment, you can:

    1. Use the Ministry of Health's Self Assessment Tool or School Screening Tool
    2. Call Telehealth Ontario at 1.866.797.0000 (available 24/7)
    3. Contact your healthcare provider to receive a virtual assessment by phone or other technology.
    4. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call CK Public Health’s COVID-19 line at 519.355.1071 X 1900
    5. Book an appointment or go to the COVID-19 assessment centre (do not stop anywhere else & continue to keep 2-metres between yourself and others).

    Only call 911 or attend an emergency department if you feel you are not getting enough air or are experiencing other severe symptoms.
