Northern Health residents can now book a COVID-19 test online

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, people in the North have been directed to their family doctor or nurse practitioner, or to the NH Virtual Primary and Community Care Clinic (VPCCC) to access a COVID-19 assessment and test. In the last month, COVID-19 cases have increased across the region, putting significant pressure on health care to respond.

Book a COVID-19 test online

To address this concern, starting October 4, 2021, symptomatic Northerners who require a COVID-19 test will be able to access an online NH COVID-19 test booking form. This form will start the process for people to access a test at their preferred testing site. People can still continue to contact their primary care provider or call the NH Virtual Clinic at 1-844-645-7811 for a COVID-19 assessment and test. If you complete the online test booking form, there is no need to call the Virtual Clinic. The testing site will contact you to book your COVID-19 test.

The website for the COVID-19 test booking form is now live, and is on the Northern Health website under ‘book your COVID-19 test.’ For more information about testing, visit the Northern Health website.
