Covid Testing Clinic - March 12-14

Ottawa Public Health (OPH), in conjunction with CHEO and the four Ottawa School Boards has been offering COVID-19 Testing centres in various neighbourhoods in Ottawa. These tests are being conducted in schools on weekends.

On the weekend of March 12-14, our St. Pius X family of schools are invited to the testing centre at Omer-Deslauriers school, owned by one of the French Boards. Being tested is optional but the clinic is open to all staff and students and their families associated with St. Pius X High School. This clinic offers the rapid test, which is described well in the attached OPH letter.

Please see the attached letter that contains detailed information on the testing process, which is offered in English, French, Somali and Arabic.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the school if you have any questions.
