Do not attend the Mission Assessment Centre without receiving an appointment (instructions below)
The Mission Division of Family Practice has opened a COVID-19 Assessment Centre in Mission. Read the following information about how the Assessment Centre works and how you can arrange an appointment for yourself or someone in your care.
Receiving an appointment for Assessment
We are now accepting walk-ins at the Assessment Centre, but an appointment is still recommended. There are two methods to book an appointment:
METHOD 1 – Call your family physician or nurse practitioner to discuss your symptoms by phone
Important: Do not visit your family physician if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or suspect you are infected. You must call your physician to discuss your symptoms by phone, and your physician will determine next steps for your care and may refer you to visit the Mission COVID-19 Assessment Centre.
METHOD 2 – Take the COVID-19 Assessment on this site
The COVID-19 Assessment will ask you a series of questions about your symptoms. Your honest answers to these questions will help us to determine next steps. Depending on your symptoms and their severity you will be instructed on what your next steps should be and you may be asked to provide your contact information so that a healthcare professional can call you to discuss further assessment.
Please note that if you have mild symptoms you do not need an assessment at this time and you will be asked to self-isolate for at least 10 days.

COVID-19 Test Results
It currently takes up to 96 hours (4 days) to obtain results from a COVID-19 test
If your result is negative
This means you do not have COVID-19. Your family physician (if you have one) will advise you of your negative result; if you do not have a family physician, another healthcare practitioner will contact you to advise you.
If your result is positive
This means you have COVID-19. A member of the Mission COVID-19 Response team will contact you to advise you of your positive result and to discuss any further steps required for your care and what steps you must take to ensure you do not spread the Coronovirus infection to anyone else.
