Dedicated COVID-19 collection locations

A limited number of Southern.IML Pathology collection centres and drive-through sites  are designated as COVID-19 only collection locations.  With stringent safety procedures associated with COVID-19 specimen collection, these centres are operated by staff members who have expertise covering all aspects of coronavirus/respiratory virus specimen handling, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). The dedicated centres have been carefully selected, with no shared facilities.


You can have your COVID-19 test done at these locations without an appointment.  A referral is not needed
