COVID-19 Testing Clinic

Important: In order to speed up the process, we now ask that you register before you arrive at the COVID-19 Testing Clinic on the secure Québec COVID-19 Screening Platform. Open the link in Google Chrome. If you have difficulty accessing or filling out online forms, assistance will be provided on site. Do NOT delay your test.


The COVID-19 Testing Clinic is open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment is needed, however, we require that you register beforehand.

Please note that priority for testing will now be given to symptomatic people and people who have been in contact with an infected person.


Opening times for patients being tested before a surgery, procedure or treatment

If you are a patient coming for a COVID-19 test before a surgery, procedure or treatment, you should arrive at the Testing Clinic during the following hours, before the general public are admitted. This will enable your test to be processed in time for your appointment, and you will avoid lining up with people who may have COVID-19.

Sunday-Thursday inclusive, 8 - 10 a.m.


Testing for travelers

Important: Travelling? The MUHC Testing Clinic does NOT provide COVID-19 tests for those who require certificates for the purposes of travel, except for MUHC employees required to travel for work. Consult this list of laboratories offering this service.
