NTHSSA is opening the drive through COVID-19 screening service in Yellowknife starting Tuesday, September 8th. The drive-thru is located behind the downtown Yellowknife Primary Care site (access from 47th street)
This service will be available Monday- Friday, 8:30- 1600.
If demand warrants we may expand the service to run weekends.
This was a popular option when we opened it at the outset of COVID-19 and we are bringing it back to prepare should we see increased demand for testing. With many people returning to work and school, increased contact, and regular travel back to the NWT by residents and essential workers the NTHSSA is working to enhance our protective measures and make access to testing easy and convenient.
This provides a quick and easy option to get a covid-19 test for anyone who is symptomatic that reduces contact and maximizes use of resources to ensure we can efficiently provide testing to residents.
You should get tested if you have symptoms that may be related to COVID-19.
If you would prefer an in-clinic appointment or cannot access the drive through please call public health at 767-9120 or request a callback through our online callback form for Yellowknife clinic bookings.
