COVID-19 tests can now be booked online

Yukoners can now book COVID-19 tests online through the recently launched online booking tool. People who have a valid health-care card can now book an appointment online if they are experiencing any COVID-19 like symptoms and require testing.

The online booking tool asks a series of questions, taking users through several steps to help determine what type of test is most suitable based on their needs. The new tool will then confirm a user’s symptoms and the reason for a COVID-19 test before confirming an appointment.

Online booking appointments are available only in Whitehorse through the COVID Testing Assessment Centre (CTAC) at this time. For residents in communities, please continue to contact your health care provider or local health centre if you require testing or are bound to medical travel.

When people get tested for COVID-19 it helps keep Yukon safe for all of us. The online booking system will make it easier for people to make their appointment because booking will be available wherever and whenever people can get online.  We hope this will help us all get tested if we have any symptoms of COVID-19.
