In B.C. COVID-19 testing is done for people that have compatible COVID like symptoms, however mild, and those who have been sent for testing by their health care provider (physician or nurse practitioner) or public health.
Please note, we do not provide testing to asymptomatic individuals including pre-travel or employer requirements. If you had a positive COVID-19 test within the past 3 months, you will only need to be retested if you are experiencing new COVID like symptoms. If you are unsure if you qualify for testing, contact your family physician, health care provider, 8-1-1, or use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool
Symptoms compatible with COVID-19
If you develop severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing (e.g. struggling to breathe or speaking in single words) or chest pain, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.

Each individual will require their own booking.

If you have 1 or more of these symptoms, seek testing as soon as possible:
  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Loss of sense of smell or taste
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of appetite
  • Extreme fatigue or tiredness
  • Headache
  • Body aches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Less common symptoms of COVID-19 infection include nasal symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, congestion and sinus involvement), conjunctivitis (pink eye), dizziness, confusion, abdominal pain, and skin rashes or discoloration of fingers or toes.
Children have similar but milder symptoms to adults.
Testing for Confirmed COVID-19 contacts
If you are a confirmed contact of a COVID-19 case, you will have been contacted by Interior Health.

A contact is someone who had face-to-face interaction with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Some examples of a contact are:
  • A partner or family member
  • Someone you live with
  • Someone you had close social contact with
  • Someone you work closely with
To be considered a contact, you would have spent more than 15 minutes with this person, from 48 hours before they developed symptoms to 10 days after. You may have interacted without the use of physical distancing or physical barriers.

As a contact you need a COVID-19 test if you have 1 or more COVID like symptoms.

If you have any symptoms that are not on this list and you are able to manage your symptoms at home, stay home until you feel better. If you have any questions, or the symptoms don’t go away contact your healthcare provider or call 8-1-1.
