Where is the Assessment Centre in Wawa?
The Assessment Centre is located the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre at 3 Chris Simon Drive, Wawa.
I have been swabbed? Where do I get my results?
All positive swab results will be communicated to you by the Public Health Unit. Negative results will not necessarily be communicated, due to volume. Ontario has launched a self-service portal for patient results, which is available here (https://covid-19.ontario.ca/ ). You will need your health card to access your result. Current wait time for processing results is between 2-7 days, although the province is hoping this time will decrease as capacity improves. Until your results are reported, it is essential that you continue with self-isolation steps as advised.
Can I get my prescription refilled?
Yes, call your pharmacy and ask them. They will contact your health care provider who will then provide the refill.
Please note, there is a 30 day maximum on refills.
