Antigen Testing for Visitors

See the visiting information for site-specific antigen testing requirements for visitors.

What is Antigen Testing?

An antigen test (also known as a point-of-care test) takes approximately 15 minutes to yield a result. The antigen testing used by Oak Medical Arts will collect a sample using a lower nasal swab.

Positive Antigen Test Result

If your antigen test is positive, the Health Unit will be notified and you will need to book an appointment with the Assessment Centre for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) nasopharyngeal test. You will receive further direction from public health if the PCR is positive. If the PCR is negative, you will need to show a new negative antigen test on day of entry.

Antigen Test Provider

Antigen testing is provided by Oak Medical Arts at four sites across Thunder Bay. They have a designated phone number (807) 344-4078 to book appointments, change or cancel appointments or ask questions. As well you can book online using the links in the table below.
