Walk-in COVID-19 Testing Available in Edmonton & Fort McMurray

Walk-in COVID-19 Testing Available in Alberta

Due to the increase of positive COVID-19 cases in Alberta, and the ongoing limitations of testing through Alberta Health Services for asymptomatic individuals, DriverCheck (“DC”) is offering walk-in COVID-19 testing at our Edmonton West and Fort McMurray DC Clinics. 

COVID-19 testing is available for asymptomatic individuals, or those who require testing for travel purposes, and symptomatic individuals. 

This is considered a private test, and results will only be released to the individual that has a test performed. Individuals are responsible for payment before the test is performed.

SYMPTOMATIC TESTING

DC offers COVID-19 lab-based PCR testing for symptomatic individuals. 

Do not walk-in. When you arrive at the clinic, please call before entering the building, to reduce exposure to other clinic visitors, and DC staff. 

DC personnel will either come out to your vehicle, or instruct you to park in a private area to perform the test. Results are typically received within 24-48 hours.

ASYMPTOMATIC TESTING

DC offers COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic individuals, who want access to testing for their own peace of mind, and medical surveillance. 

TRAVEL

If you are in need of a COVID-19 test for travel reasons, please stay current with your destination(s) regulations and requirements. This may differ by country and province.

SCREENING MEASURE

Please note that an antigen test is a screening tool for asymptomatic individuals only. If a person receives a positive antigen test result, they should immediately book an appointment for a lab-based PCR test for confirmation, either through AHS (pubic health, no payment required) or a DC clinic (private test, payment required).

If you’re displaying symptoms, a lab-based PCR test is required, either through AHS (pubic health, no payment required) or a DC clinic (private test, payment required).
