INTERIOR HEALTH AUTHORITY COVID-19 TESTING SITE NOW OPERATIONAL IN NELSON


As of March 13, 2020, the COVID-19 testing site is now operational in Nelson. The site will run 7 days a week. Testing will be by appointment only and must be booked through the testing site triage phone number at (250) 551-7500.

It is important that only those persons with symptoms or those concerned they may have been exposed to the virus utilize this resource to ensure there is availability for those who require this service.

When a patient phones the testing line, they will speak to a trained professional that will determine if they require screening using the Ministry of Health Guidelines. If it is determined that they should be screened, they will be given a date, time and location for the testing. Persons arriving at the testing location without an appointment will not be admitted.

There will be someone staffing the testing site triage phone during regular office hours. Outside of regular hours, patients can leave their name and phone number and someone will return their call.

For further information regarding COVID-19, patients can call the Healthlink number 8-1-1.

Patients can also visit the BC Centre for Disease Control at: www.bccdc.ca.
