Extended hours announced as mobile COVID-19 testing returns to Brampton
Brampton, ON (June 24, 2020) – Peel’s mobile COVID-19 testing site returns to Gore Meadows Community Centre in north Brampton this Friday, June 26.
The first mobile testing centre visit to Gore Meadows in early June saw many residents tested and was one of the many actions that has contributed to Peel being able to move into Phase II reopening. With this, the mobile testing unit will continue to strategically move through neigbourhoods most in need of testing to keep up this positive trend.
We are also happy to announce that hours are being extended to 8 p.m. to help more residents attend for testing in the evening hours.
Testing site: Gore Meadows Community Centre
Address: 10150 The Gore Rd, Brampton
Date: Friday, June 26, 2020
Time: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Before attending, residents should remember:
- Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should attend one of the hospital-based assessment centres for testing, rather than attend the mobile location.
- Please wear a non-medical mask when you arrive.
- Depending on their risk of exposure, residents attending the mobile testing location may need to self-isolate at home for 14 days following their test or until their results come back negative.
- Results will be available online for anyone with a green Health Card.
Mobile testing across Peel Region is made possible through a partnership between Ontario Health (Central), Region of Peel, Peel Public Health, Peel Paramedics, primary care, community partners and hospital partners like Headwaters Health Care Centre, Trillium Health Partners and William Osler Health System.
