A pair of Niagara Health’s COVID-19 testing centres are set to close down on Friday, citing a drop in demand for testing.
The Niagara Falls Assessment Centre will be closed as of 4 p.m. and the Welland Assessment Centre will shut down at 5 p.m.
The assessment centre at the St. Catharines Hospital will remain open and operate Monday to Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Testing for residents is also readily available at a number of regional pharmacies and primary care offices.
Over 255,700 tests for 144,000 people have been processed since the Niagara Health assessment centres opened.
The assessment centres in Niagara Falls and Welland launched in the spring of 2020 amid rising cases due to the pandemic.
Niagara public health reported just seven new COVID-19 cases on Thursday and 66 active cases.
The region has recorded over 16,297 COVID cases amid the pandemic as of July 15.View link »
