PSA: Public Health Mobile Units providing additional COVID-19 testing in all zones

In an effort to ensure all Nova Scotians have access to COVID-19 testing as needed, the Public Health Mobile Units (PHMU) will be offering testing in the communities listed below. All upcoming PHMU clinics can be found online at https://www.nshealth.ca/PHMU.

If you do not have symptoms, you are welcome to drop in to a PHMU clinic to pick up a box of rapid test kits. Nova Scotians are encouraged to have one box of rapid tests on hand in case symptoms develop.

If you have symptoms, PHMU conducts on-site PCR testing and provides rapid test pick-up, with or without an appointment – drop-ins are welcome. You can also book a testing appointment at a PHMU clinic in your area. To do so, please complete the online assessment at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en. You can also book an appointment by calling 811.

Please complete the Report and Support screening form if you are booking a PCR test or have a positive rapid test - https://www.nshealth.ca/reportandsupport. You can also complete the form by calling 1-833-797-7772.
