Also, a reminder that SHA is expanding drive-thru testing hours in Regina and Saskatoon in the New Year; starting January 2, 2021, the Regina COVID-19 drive-thru testing site will be open 11:30 to 7 p.m. seven days a week. Beginning January 4, 2021, the Saskatoon COVID-19 drive-thru testing site will be open from 12 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.
A referral is not required to access a drive-thru test. It is imperative that you wear a mask and anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. In your vehicle, everyone should be members of the same, immediate household. You need a valid Health Card or an alternate government-issued form of identification (e.g., driver’s license, passport). Every person in the vehicle who has these documents can be tested.
Drive-thru testing sites are on a first-come, first-served basis and wait times should be expected depending on the demand for services. Being tested for COVID-19 can be anxious experience for some, so while you are accessing the services of the COVID-19 drive-thru testing site, we also ask that you please respect the privacy of those who are being tested as well as the privacy of our staff members.
More than 50 testing sites are open across Saskatchewan for individuals looking to receive a specific appointment time. Appointments are made by referral by calling HealthLine 811, your family physician or nurse practitioner. More information on testing, as well as a self-assessment tool to determine if you need testing, can be found at saskatchewan.ca/COVID-19.
