KAWARTHA LAKES: Ross Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre, which provides COVID-19 testing and clinical assessments, will move to the Victoria Park Armoury, starting Tuesday, January 11th.


Appointments are available on-site Monday-to-Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and are not available on statutory holidays, COVID-19 tests are by appointment only. To book an appointment, if you are eligible, please call 705-328-6217.


Due to current demand, there may be a delay in getting through or leaving a message. Please continue trying, and refrain from leaving multiple messages. You will receive a call back within 1-2 business days.


In addition to testing, Ross Memorial’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre offers clinical assessments, to support community members with known or suspected COVID-19 infection, to conserve needed capacity in our emergency department.


Clinical assessments are intended for people with worsening symptoms or who have been advised by a health care professional who requires an assessment and diagnosis for their symptoms. This is because their symptoms cannot be safely self-monitored at home, but they are also not experiencing severe symptoms which would require emergency care.


Individuals, who a health care professional has directed to seek a clinical assessment, are asked to book an appointment through the same 705-328-6217 phone number.


The Victoria Park Armoury is located in Lindsay, at 210 Kent Street West.
