Testing is recommended for anyone with cold, influenza, or COVID-19-like symptoms, however mild. If you develop symptoms, use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to determine if you need further assessment or testing for COVID-19.
How can I get a COVID-19 test?
If you are seeking a test, you can call your primary care provider (family physician or nurse practitioner) or the testing and assessment site nearest to you. The list of Interior Health sites is below.
How do I get my COVID-19 test results?
COVID-19 test results should be available in 48 hours from the time you were tested. Public health will call you if your test results are positive. Results, both positive and negative, are also accessible through the following options:
- BCCDC Negative Results line: call 1-833-707-2792, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, PST, seven days per week.
- Text message from BCCDC: Sign up here to get a text directly to your cell phone.
- MyHealthPortal: Check online at MyHealthPortal. If you are not enrolled, ask to have your email entered on your patient record during your testing visit, and then click on “Request to enrol” at the link above. For support, call 1-844-870-4756, Monday to Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM, PST. MyHealthPortal will indicate your test result or refer you to the BCCDC options above.
If your results are not available after 48 hours and public health has not contacted you, call the BCCDC Negative Results line and speak to an operator.

First Nation Health Service Organizations COVID 19 Testing & Assessment Centres
Interior Health is collaborating with First Nation Health Service Organizations who would like to implement COVID-19 testing within their community. The principle of this work is to ensure that access to testing is available for those presenting with symptoms and who live in remote and rural First Nation communities.
Testing at First Nation Health Service Organizations is by appointment. Please call to determine testing times and to determine eligibility to access testing.
