Peterborough’s drive-through COVID-19 testing centre, located at Eastgate Memorial Park on Ashburnham Drive in East City, will close for one day on Monday (October 5) and reopen the following day

While the Ontario government announced last week that all the province’s COVID-19 assessment centres would provide testing by appointment only as of Tuesday (October 5), the centre at Eastgate Memorial Park will continue to provide drive-through service until it can implement appointment-based service on Friday (October 9).

Details and instructions for booking an appointment will be provided once they are available.
