COVID-19 Links and Information

Please do not visit the Centre without an appointment

If you require care, please call our Centre. Your call will be triaged to determine if you require an office visit, video visit or phone visit.  

The health of clients and staff is our priority.  Masks continue to be required in the health centre. All visitors to East End Community Health Centre will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the building. Please use the front entrance on Queen Street. The side entrance on Coxwell is closed.

Health care providers may call from a “blocked” number – please answer.

If you are concerned that you may have been exposed to, or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please start by visiting the Ministry of Health website and taking their self-assessment.

East End Community Health Centre is not providing COVID-19 testing to the general public.

If you need a COVID-19 PCR test or treatment, you may visit your local pharmacy or another Clinical Assessment Centre or testing site in Toronto.

Information about other COVID-19 Assessment Centres in Toronto is available at the following link:

To ensure that anyone in need of care can receive it, the Ontario Ministry of Health is waiving the three-month waiting period for Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) coverage.
Additionally, the province will cover the cost of COVID-19 services for uninsured people who do not meet the criteria for OHIP coverage. Together, these measures will ensure that no one will be discouraged from seeking screening or treatment for COVID-19 for financial reasons.
