COVID-19 Testing at Local Pharmacies

If you are showing COVID-19 symptoms, and are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative as determined by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Long-term Care or public health, you can be tested at a local pharmacy. For a list of participating pharmacies offering COVID-19 testing to asymptomatic individuals, visit the Government of Ontario’s page for COVID-19 testing locations.

COVID-19 Treatments and Eligibility

Antiviral treatments are available for individuals with symptoms and a positive test result (PCR or rapid antigen test) who are at higher risk of severe COVID-19. Because these treatments must be taken within the first five to seven days of symptom onset, symptomatic persons who are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 should seek testing and assessment immediately. Take this screener to determine if you are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 and may benefit from these treatments. Find out more about antiviral treatment options or talk to your health care provider.
