RVH running drive-thru testing for those without symptoms as Big Bay Point Road clinic starts seeing Walk-in patients again

If you have some symptoms, visit Huronia Road Assessment Centre

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre is offering drive-thru COVID-19 testing for those without symptoms of the virus.

RVH says those who are symptom-free should drive to the hospital’s Atrium entrance if they seek a test. The entrance is closed to patients and visitors as it is being used solely for the drive-thru clinic. Testing takes place Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

RVH is conducting testing for those without symptoms

Those with symptoms of COVD-19 are encouraged to go to the Barrie COVID-19 Alternate Assessment Centre at 490 Huronia Road. Symptoms include fever, cough, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat, and a runny nose. Symptoms may also include a hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, loss of sense of smell or taste, diarrhea or nausea, vomiting, or conjunctivitis. Seniors could also experience chills, delirium, falls, acute functional decline, increased heart rate, or decreased blood pressure.

If you have severe symptoms, RVH asks you to go directly to its Emergency Department or call 911.

Additional testing and walk-in clinic services can be found at the Barrie & Community Family Medicine Clinic’s facility at the Prince William Shoppers Drug Mart Plaza at 829 Big Bay Point Road.
