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.

Rapid Antigen Tests can also be used to confirm COVID-19 infection if you are symptomatic, at high-risk of severe outcomes and would benefit from anti-viral treatment.

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 selected government drug benefit programs, private insurance, or payment directly by the patient.  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.
