Nova Scotia Health is providing additional COVID-19 testing in HRM this month.
As Nova Scotians continue to experience symptoms, the province says they are making an effort to “ensure all Nova Scotians have access to COVID-19 testing.”
As a result, Public Health mobile units will be offering testing in several communities across the province, including in HRM.
On August 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., a mobile unit will be set up at the Halifax Transit Bridge Terminal on Nantucket Avenue in Dartmouth.
The mobile units conduct on-site PCR testing by appointment. Community members can also access take-home rapid test kits with or without an appointment, while supplies last.
If you require a PCR or rapid test because you are experiencing symptoms, you are encouraged to book an appointment to ensure the type of test you need will be available.
Testing is free and available to all ages who meet eligibility requirements. Please bring your health card if you have one.
Drop-in PCR testing is offered based on capacity.
To book an appointment, please complete the online assessment at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en. Those who do not have access to the internet can book an appointment by calling 811.
