COVID 19 Testing

Island Health has opened a new COVID-19 testing site at the University of Victoria. People with cold, flu or COVID-19-like symptoms can now book an appointment to get a test at the UVic campus in parking lot 10, off Gordon Head Road via West Campus Way (access off Gordon Head Road).

As with all other Island Health collection sites, appointments for COVID-19 testing must be pre-booked through Island Health’s Call Centre. The UVic site will be open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will not provide tests for walk-up or drive-in clients without an appointment.  
 
To find out if you require a test, use the bc.thrive.health(link is external) self-assessment tool. People with symptoms can call: 1-844-901-8442 and expect to hear back from an Island Health representative within 24-hours to schedule a test. More information can be found on the
 Island Health's website.
