Getting tested for COVID-19: We made our editor get swabbed so you know what to expect (video) editor Mark Gentili visits the drive-thru testing site on Walford Road

In order to better understand the spread of COVID-19, the Ontario government is urging more people to get tested - even if they are not experiencing any symptoms. editor Mark Gentili volunteered to get tested at one of the city's drive-thru testing sites.

Watch as our cameras followed him through each step, from booking an appointment with the COVID-19 Assessment Centre at Health Sciences North (HSN) to getting his nose swabbed and getting the test results back.  

If you're concerned you may have been exposed to COVID-19, make an appointment to get tested by phoning Health Sciences North's COVID-19 Assessment Centre at 705-671-7373.
