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)

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.

Waiting for a surgery?

If you are about to have a surgery, please note that you must be tested for Covid-19 48 hours prior to the surgery and follow some special instructions. Check this document for all the details.
