Public Health mobile units providing additional COVID-19 testing in all zones

In an effort to ensure all Nova Scotians have access to COVID-19 testing as needed, especially those in rural communities where testing is not available nearby, the Public Health mobile units will be offering testing in the communities listed below. All upcoming mobile unit clinics can be found online at https://www.nshealth.ca/PHMU.

The mobile units conduct on-site PCR testing by appointment, including to confirm positive rapid test results. Drop-in PCR testing is offered based on capacity. Community members can also access take-home rapid test kits with or without an appointment, while supplies last. If you require a PCR or rapid test because you are a household close contact or are experiencing symptoms, you are encouraged to book an appointment to ensure the type of test you need will be available

To book an appointment, please complete the online assessment at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en. Those who do not have access to the internet can book an appointment by calling 811.
