Have you been tested for COVID-19? You can now access your test results online.

Toronto residents who have issues accessing results, or who do not have internet access, may contact Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600.

A number of dedicated assessment centres have been established across Toronto to facilitate assessment and testing. Toronto Public Health (TPH) is not an assessment centre and testing is not provided at TPH offices.

OHIP coverage is not required to be seen at a COVID-19 Assessment Centre. The assessment is provided at no cost to the individual.
