COVID-19 testing

We are currently experiencing a high volume of demand for COVID-19 testing. Please:

  • First determine if you require a COVID-19 test by completing a self-assessment
  • Do not seek testing at multiple COVID-19 assesment centres as this will result in delayed access and delayed test results for all. If you have already booked an appointment at an assessment centre and can no longer make it, please cancel and rebook your time so others who need a test can be seen. 

Testing and assessment are by appointment only. Please note the testing centre does not test for antibodies to see if you had COVID-19 in the past.

How to arrange for a test

To arrange for a test at the Cambridge-North Dumfries Community COVID-19 Assessment Centre (at CMH) you must book an appointment. Due to the high number of requests, we are no longer able to able to process email or voicemail requests.
