Miramichi has been designated as a Covid-19 testing centre where, by appointment only, people will be able to attend and be tested. Calling 8-1-1 is still required to get an appointment.
COVID-19 Community Assessment Centres across Horizon offer appointments for patients exhibiting mild to moderate symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Appointments are provided following a triage completed by Tele-Care 811.
Community Assessment Centres will help to reduce visits to emergency departments and minimize the risk of transmission.
These are not walk-in clinics. They will complete COVID-19 screening and testing by appointment only.
Community Assessment Centres are set up in Moncton, Saint John, Miramichi, Fredericton and Upper River Valley.
New Brunswickers are asked to only call Tele-Care 811 if you are displaying mild or moderate symptoms.
In an emergency, or if you are experiencing severe symptoms, please call 911 or call ahead to your local Emergency Department so they can prepare for your arrival.
