Sep 25 2020, 11:39 pm

Fraser Health will be opening a new COVID-19 testing and collection centre in the Tri-Cities on October 5.

The announcement comes after the lone testing centre in the region declared its closure as of October 2.

“Fraser Health was officially notified yesterday that the existing test collection centre in Port Coquitlam would be closing. Fraser Health extends our gratitude to the physicians who undertook this important service for people living in the Tri-Cities,” said the health authority in a statement.

The new centre will be located at 2796 Aberdeen Ave in Coquitlam at TransLink’s Coquitlam Central Park and Ride lot and will have the capacity to conduct up to 800 tests a day.

Drive-thru lanes will be available on-site as well as walk-in availability, seven days a week. Visitors can use online booking to secure slots.

“While testing without an appointment will be accommodated as space allows, people are now encouraged to book appointments online for the Tri-Cities, Langley, Surrey and Burnaby test collection services,” notes Fraser Health.
