Testing

The CISSS de l’Outaouais would like to remind you that Covid-19 is still circulating in the community. We therefore strongly recommend that people with symptoms of Covid-19 or who have been in contact with symptomatic people go for testing.

If you have been waiting for your test result for more than 72 hours you can contact the following number: 1 844 965-2641 or by email at 07.resultat.covid@ssss.gouv.qc.ca.

To help you decide if you need testing, consult the Symptom Self-Assesment Tool : https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/covid-19-symptom-self-assessment-tool/

Testing for COVID-19 by gargling

Some screening clinics offer a new method of testing for COVID-19 that involves gargling with spring water. If your situation allows, this method of sampling will be offered to you during your screening.

Here is a video explaining the gargle test. (french only)

To be eligible for this method, users must not drink, eat, smoke or chew gum 15 minutes before the test.

Testing in preparation for a trip

Testing for travellers is not a service provided by the Government of Quebec and therefore anyone who wishes to be screened for travel will be redirected to a private laboratory.

For Employers

The Direction de santé publique and the Direction des services multidisciplinaires et à la communauté of the CISSS de l’Outaouais are asking for the collaboration of employers in the Outaouais region in order not to require a medical certificate following a screening test for COVID-19. For more information, please consult the press release to this effect.
