The Saskatchewan Health Authority will begin offering daily, drive thru mobile testing in Prince Albert on December 2 in order to meet an increased demand.
The testing is available at The Cone Shop Car Wash 890 6th Ave E from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. We do require that anyone who seeks a test has their health card with them, and that anyone under the age of 16 be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
As first-come, first-served sites, the public should expect some wait times at the drive-thrus, due to possible demand for services and the protocols that need to be followed to ensure safety for everyone. Patient registration, specimen collection and cleaning protocols will still need to be completed.
Everyone in each vehicle should be members of the same family or family bubble, and as long as everyone in the vehicle has a valid Saskatchewan Health Card, everybody can get a test during the same visit. Offering these new testing sites is one of the ways the SHA is expanding options for people to get tested for COVID-19. Testing is part of the Saskatchewan Health Authority's strategy to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Prince Albert’s current test site continues to operate with booked appointments via referral from 811 or your physician.
