Horizon's COVID-19 Assessment Centres offer appointments for patients with symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as those who've been directed by Public Health to be tested for COVID-19. Testing is essential to help reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in New Brunswick.  

If you are displaying mild or moderate symptoms of COVID-19, complete the self-assessment by visiting  gnb.ca/coronavirus or calling Tele-Care 811.

Button - Request a COVID test EN - February 8 2021

Following an assessment by Tele-Care, if you require an in-person assessment (COVID-19 test), a referral will be sent to a COVID-19 Assessment Centre. Staff at the assessment centre will contact you to schedule an appointment; this should be completed within 24 hours, but it will depend on the number of referrals.

These are not walk-in clinics. Hours may vary at each location, depending on the volume of referrals received.

A health care provider will provide an assessment and medical advice and guidance, and complete the screening test. The health care team may include a physician, nurse practitioner, Registered Nurse or a Licensed Practical Nurse.

New Brunswick offers two options for COVID-19 testing in children and youth. Find information about the process and what to expect here.

In an emergency, or if you are experiencing severe symptoms, please call 911 or call ahead to your local Emergency Department so they can prepare for your arrival. Individuals should not come to the Emergency Department for a COVID-19 test or to obtain their results.

While waiting for your test results

Once you've been tested, it can take up to four days to receive your results. Information on how to access your online results via MyHealthNB will be provided to you by the assessment centre staff when you have your test completed.

While you wait for your COVID-19 test result, make a list of places you have been and people you have encountered over the 10 days before you registered for the test. This will be important information to have available.

If your test is positive, someone from Public Health will call you to check on your health, discuss who you have been around, and ask where you spent time while you may have been able to spread the virus to others.

Even if you receive negative results, it is important to read the information given when accessing your test online.

Self-monitoring and isolation

What's the difference between self-monitoring and self-isolation?

You self-monitor when you:

  • Have no symptoms
  • Have had a possible exposure to COVID-19 in the last 14 days
