"If you develop cold, influenza or COVID-19-like symptoms, use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to help determine if you need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. You can complete this assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.


If an individual has no symptoms, even if they are a contact of a confirmed case or a returning traveller, they do not require a test.


At this time, any physician or nurse practitioner can order a test for a patient with cold, influenza or COVID-19-like symptoms based on their clinical judgment.


If you do not have a primary care provider (Doctor/Nurse Practitioner, etc.) please call Island Health’s North Island Call Centre 1-250-902-6091. Appointments for COVID-19 testing must be pre-booked through a primary care provider or Island Health’s Call Centre. Testing sites are unable to accommodate unscheduled or walk-in visits. Find a testing site, also known as a collection centre, at a location near you.


Island Health asks members of the public to please not go to a hospital emergency department seeking COVID-19 testing. However, people experiencing a medical emergency should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.



Read more about symptoms, testing and isolation.

For more information, please visit the BCCDC webpage on COVID-19 testing."
