To increase COVID-19 testing capacity in Calgary, Alberta Health Services (AHS) has established a new assessment and testing site in N.E. Calgary with the help of the City of Calgary.
The temporary walk-up testing site is located at the McKnight Westwinds Park & Ride lot, 6200 36 Street N.E. This facility is for those with COVID-19 symptoms or those who are close contacts of a confirmed COVID-19 case.
With an increase in COVID-19 cases, including the more contagious variant strains, Albertans with symptoms and those who have been in close contact with a suspect or confirmed case are strongly encouraged to book a quick, free appointment.
The site, opening on Friday, April 30, will operate from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
This service is for booked appointments only. This location will be available through the booking tool and people can easily schedule appointments online on the AHS website at COVID-19 Testing / Online Booking or by calling 811.
