Information Bulletin

Northern Health’s Prince George COVID-19 testing collection centre is moving to a new location in Parkwood Place Shopping Centre.

To date, COVID-19 testing has been available at the Prince George Urgent and Primary Care Centre, #143 Parkwood Place, 1600 15th Avenue. Effective Wednesday October 14, 2020, the new location will be #175-1600 15th Ave (near the Cineplex theatre).

The new testing location will allow for appointment-based testing to be available seven days per week, from 8 am to 4 pm. 

Individuals referred for testing will be booked at this new location starting Wednesday October 14th. Individuals with an appointment for a COVID-19 test are advised to wait outside the testing centre (in their vehicle, for example) and await a call to come inside when it is their turn for testing.

Northerners are encouraged to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms on an ongoing basis, and – if symptoms develop – self isolate, and contact the NH COVID-19 Online Clinic & Info Line (1-844-645-7811) or their primary care provider, to be assessed for testing. Please do not head to a testing centre without an assessment and booked appointment.
