Hamilton Coronoavirus COVID-19 Assessment Centres

Hamilton has two COVID-19 Assessment Centres that are now open. These clinics will assess whether people need more medical care and/or testing for COVID-19 based on symptoms (cough or fever), travel history and/or exposure to known cases.

Before going to an Assessment Centre, you should take the following steps:

1. Complete a self-assessment at www.ontario.ca/coronavirus to determine if it is necessary to contact public health, your doctor or Telehealth Ontario for more guidance.

2. If the self-assessment indicates that clinical assessment is necessary, for further guidance contact:

  • Your doctor
  • Hamilton Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848*
  • Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000

3. If a referral is provided by your doctor, public health or Telehealth, you will be booked to visit an Assessment Centre.

Not everyone who comes to the Assessment Centres will be tested for COVID-19.

If you require urgent care, visit an Emergency Department or call 911, and inform them of your travel and contact history and symptoms.


*Call volumes to the Public Health Hotline regarding assessment centres are very high at this time
Before calling, please complete a self-assessment at www.ontario.ca/coronavirus to determine if it is necessary to contact Public Health, your doctor or Telehealth Ontario for more guidance. Thank you for your patience.

Nova Scotia COVID-19 Coronavirus Assessment Centres

Anyone who has travelled outside Canada may have come in contact with the novel coronavirus and should closely monitor their health for 14 days after returning to the country.

If you have travelled outside of Canada, you are required to stay at home/self-isolate away from the public.

Nova Scotians who have travelled out of country and who develop a fever with a temperature of 38°C or higher, and/or cough, should use this screening tool to find out if you should call 811 about COVID-19. https://when-to-call-about-covid19.novascotia.ca/en

If there is a need for in-person assessment, 811 will refer to a COVID-19 assessment centre and you will be contacted for an appointment.

Please do not go to a COVID-19 assessment centre without having been referred by 811.

Those directed to an assessment centre by 811 will then have a physical assessment on site and based on that a swab will be taken for patients for whom it is appropriate.
