Some people who have COVID-19 don’t have any symptoms and can spread it to others without knowing.
Getting an asymptomatic test is a fast, easy and free way to help protect yourself and your community from the spread of COVID-19.
Testing is available in all areas of Nova Scotia and easily booked online.
Even with a negative test result, you must keep using other healthy habits like masking, handwashing, keeping your social circle small, and self-monitoring for symptoms.
In some cases, people without symptoms are advised get tested for COVID-19. This includes people who were at a potential exposure site named by Public Health and rotational workers. Book your COVID-19 test
