COVID-19 Testing and Treatment
If you have respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, stuffy nose, etc.), please stay home and take Ontario’s self-assessment for recommendations on what to do next.
Eligibility for PCR or rapid molecular testing
If you’re at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID‑19, and would benefit from anti-viral treatment, you’re eligible for PCR or rapid molecular testing and should seek out testing as soon as possible if you develop symptoms. Learn more at www.ontario.ca.
Rapid Antigen Tests (RAT)
Free Rapid Antigen Tests are available at the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) in London, Ontario (located inside Citi Plaza, 110-355 Wellington St.). Please visit the MLHU’s reception area between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (Monday to Friday) and ask the receptionist for a Rapid Antigen Test.
Please note: Rapid Antigen Tests are not widely available in Middlesex-London. If you have respiratory symptoms, please stay home and follow the self-isolation instructions.
COVID-19 Antiviral Treatments
Antiviral treatments for COVID-19 can prevent serious illness if taken quickly after symptoms start (within the first few days). They’re available in Ontario for free to anyone with a prescription. A physician, nurse practitioner or participating pharmacist can prescribe treatment if it’s right for you and if you’re at higher risk of serious illness.
