All Albertans are eligible for COVID-19 testing, whether they are experiencing symptoms or not.
Offered by appointment and free at six Alberta Health Services assessment locations around the central zone, testing can be booked online or by calling 811.
Testing can be booked at www.ahs.ca/covid.
Results will be provided to Albertans by phone within a few days of the appointment.
Regardless of your test results, it is important to continue to follow the public health measures and recommendations in place, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, says AHS.
Testing, which is done via a swab of the throat, will tell you whether you had COVID-19 at the time your swab is taken, even if you were not showing symptoms.
Testing will not tell you whether you have previously had COVID-19. It will also not tell you whether you have any immunity to COVID-19.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is legally required to self-isolate. The isolation period is 10 days from the start of symptoms, or until symptoms resolve, whichever takes longer.
