The COVID-19 Assessment Centre at the St. Clair College Sportsplex will close on Friday, and all outstanding scheduled tests will be accommodated at the Ouellette Campus COVID-19 Assessment Centre.

The hospital says that this change reflects the reductions in volumes for COVID-19 testing.

Should the need for additional testing come up, officials say that the new facility to house an assessment centre at Met Campus is ready to open should volumes warrant.

“Our local testing capacity puts us in an enviable position to make adjustments depending on fluctuations in demand for tests,” said Karen Riddell, Vice-President, Critical Care, Cardiology, Stroke, Trauma and Clinical Support Services. “We will continue to monitor our testing needs, and we are ready to open the Met Campus assessment centre with short notice should the need for a second COVID-19 Assessment Centre arise.”

The Ouellette Campus has the capacity for more than 330 tests per day, and amid current volumes, it can accommodate same-day appointments. Hours at the Ouellette Campus COVID-19 Assessment Centre remain unchanged from 8am to 7pm on weekdays, and 9am to 4pm on weekends and statutory holidays.

The Sportsplex remains available to reopen as a field hospital should circumstances once again necessitate its use.
