The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is alerting the public that access to the drive-thru testing site will be moving from Dewdney Avenue to the Lewvan Drive entrance of Evraz Place as of Friday, Nov. 27, 2020.
Beginning Friday, anyone seeking a COVID-19 test at the drive-thru site must enter through the
11th Avenue entrance of Evraz Place from Lewvan Drive on the west side of the complex. This will allow the SHA, the City of Regina and Evraz staff to better monitor traffic flow, keep line ups contained to the Evraz site and allow easier notification of estimated wait times and testing capacity.
Please note, if you are coming to the Evraz complex on Wednesdays or Saturdays for the SHA flu immunization clinic, please access the site from the Elphinstone entrance on the east side by Mosaic Stadium. This will ensure traffic flows efficiently for both the drive-thru testing site and the clinic.
Anyone wishing to be tested at these drive-thru sites will be required to:
Be aware, the Regina drive-thru testing site at Evraz Place is experiencing longer than expected waits due to increased demand. The drive-through testing sites are first come, first served, similar to a walk-in clinic, which means that wait times are expected and varied in length. The average wait time to get a test at the Regina drive-thru site varies significantly by day and hour of day – from no waits to three or more hours.
We are doing our very best to serve as many people as possible, and ask for everyone’s patience while they wait. We also encourage everyone to be kind and take care for others, including pedestrians in the area, while they are in the line.
For those individuals
who are symptomatic and would like to receive a specific appointment time, the SHA encourages you to call HealthLine 811 or ask your health practitioner for a referral.
