Island Health has winterized the working and collection environments for staff and patients at COVID-19 collection sites throughout the region. Some sites have been moved to locations that can accommodate drive-through service — a safety and security strategy for care teams and patients.
The testing site in the Comox Valley is now located at inspection bays at the ICBC Claim Centre at 505 Crowne Isle Blvd.
It’s open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday to Sunday.
Testing is appointment only. Drop-in testing is not available.
To determine if you require a COVID-19 test, use the bc.thrive.health self-assessment tool. People with symptoms can call 1-844-901-8442 and expect to hear back from Island Health within hours to schedule a test.
