As of today, no more walk-in appointments are available at COVID-19 assessment centres in Ontario. On Friday, Premier Doug Ford announced all testing would be done by appointment-only. The government hopes the change will ease the backlog of tests in Ontario, and give the province's labs a chance to catch up on a growing backlog of tests which had grown to more than 90,500 Friday.
On Friday, Medical Health Officer Dr. Wajid Ahmed said there has been significant delays in one-day turnaround for the local COVID-19 tests. He said less than 10 per cent of tests are coming back within one day and close to 50 per cent come back within two days.
A nasal swab is only valid for 72 hours, according to Public Health Ontario.
