COVID-19 information for patients and families

COVID-19, cold and flu symptoms are very similar and testing is the best way to diagnose which of these illness a person may have. Osler provides convenient, safe options for COVID-19 testing, as well as assessment and care for people who have flu-like symptoms.

If you do not have symptoms and are a resident or work in an at-risk setting, such as a long-term care home, homeless shelter or other congregate setting you may be tested for COVID-19 at a participating pharmacy. You will need to call the pharmacy to book an appointment.

See a complete list of testing centres including pharmacies in Ontario.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 but the above criteria does not apply to you, please speak with your health care provider. It’s important that you continue to follow public health measures, including wearing a face covering, washing your hands frequently and maintaining physical distance from people outside your household or social circle.
