COVID-19 Assessment Centres

Brewer Arena assessment centre

If you are planning to attend an assessment centre, please use the online assessment tool at ontario.ca/coronavirus first. If you think you have novel coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use this self-assessment to help determine if you need to seek further care.

The first COVID-19 Assessment Centre opened Friday at the Brewer Arena, located at 151 Brewer Way. The facility will be open from 9 am to 8 pm, daily. Please use the entrance on Bronson Avenue, free parking is available on site. Additional COVID-19 Assessment Centres may open later as needed.

The centre will be operated in collaboration with The Ottawa Hospital and CHEO — serving the larger public health needs of Ottawa. It will provide assessment and testing for children and adults.

The Assessment Centre is for individuals who have:

  1. Returned from international travel AND are displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19, including:
    • fever and/or
    • new or worsening cough

OR

  1. Had contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days AND are displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19, including:
    • fever and/or
    • new or worsening cough

Do not bring well children or other healthy members of the community (e.g. friends, neighbours, drivers) into the Assessment Centre.

All City of Ottawa community-based and recreational activities are redirected from Brewer Arena to other locations. The only residents using the arena will be those seeking assessments. This will ensure there is no cross-contact between facility users and those who are requesting assessments. There is no risk to the surrounding community. Currently, Brewer Pool remains open.
