Practical health tool related to COVID-19

IMPORTANT: About to travel?
Our screening clinics do not provide COVID-19 tests for people who need travel certificates. In addition, the results provided do not mention the technique used (PCR or not).
Travelers must therefore use a private laboratory for their test. Check travel information and the list of laboratories which offer this service.
Who should get tested?
- Anyone with symptoms
- Anyone who has had close contact with someone who has COVID-19
- Anyone that has been asked by public health authorities to get tested
A new recommendation from the Montérégie Department of public health is asking that everyone living under the same roof as someone with COVID symptoms remain at home until that person obtains their test results. This precautionary approach, which has also been proposed in other environments very affected by COVID, aims to reduce transmission of the virus where the rate of illness is high. However, because this is a recommendation and is not mandatory, it would not be appropriate to exclude anyone who is unable to comply with it.
To find out if you should go and get tested, use the COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool.
Use one of the following ways to get tested:
1- WITH AN APPOINTMENT
Get an appointment quickly at a designated testing clinic,
- by filling out the online form : cv19quebec.ca
- or by calling 450 644-4545 or 1 877 644-4545
2- IN A WALK-IN CLINIC (WITH OR WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT)
The testing unit provides testing for individuals working or living in the sectors of the Montérégie most affected by COVID-19 with the aim of acting quickly to curb the spread of the virus. Watch for a mobile clinic in your area.
