Thunder Bay Hospital Covid Booking System Overwhelmed

Thunder Bay Hospital Covid Booking System Overwhelmed

Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms should call

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~~   September 22, 2020 (LSN)  Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre is committed to COVID-19 testing.

Please be advised that, due to an extremely high demand, booking systems are overwhelmed, resulting in some technical issues. We request the patience of the community. Communities across Canada are experiencing the same issues, and we understand the frustration it causes.

Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms should call 807-935-8100 to book a test appointment. Same-day and next-day appointments are available, based on priority determinants, such as multiple and/or severe symptoms, and possible exposure.

Those not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms may also call 807-935-8100 to book a test appointment. They may also book on-line at www.tbrhsc.net.  Appointment availability continuously fluctuates for people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms. Wait times may be up to 10 days, as asymptomatic people are low priority for testing.

Planning is underway to address capacity issues. Updates will be provided as they become available.
