UPDATE: COVID-19 testing in Hamilton – Dec. 30, 2021

As of Dec. 30, COVID-19 test appointments in Hamilton are only open to high-risk individuals. Under the direction of Ontario Health, Hamilton Public Health Services and its healthcare partners, including St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and Hamilton Health Sciences, have updated testing eligibility to prioritize testing for those at greatest risk. This includes healthcare workers and those with health risk factors. Learn more about testing eligibility here.

Individuals with symptoms indicative of COVID-19 can be presumed to be infected with COVID-19. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, please isolate and inform your close contacts.

If you are in a high risk category, book your COVID test online at hamiltoncovidtest.ca.
