COVID-19 testing is recommended for anyone with cold, influenza or COVID-19-like symptoms, even mild ones. If you have no symptoms, you do not require a test unless Public Health directs you to be tested.
When you book your appointment please make sure to select if you will be booking a vehicle visit or pedestrian visit.

What to expect
We have created a picture gallery to help you better understand how a drive-through testing site works. The site pictured is now closed, but the below photos can give you an example of what to expect when you arrive at a testing site by foot or by vehicle.
About The Central Park Testing Site — Now Closed
The now-closed COVID-19 Testing Site and Primary Care Clinic was an extension of the Edmonds Urgent and Primary Care Centre. The site was in operation from March 28, 2020 to April 18, 2021 and accepted referrals from a secure online booking form, from family doctors and from community agencies.
The site provided drive-through COVID-19 testing, flu vaccination and clinical assessment, and included two fully equipped exam rooms for primary care visits. The site was staffed by a Family Physician, nurses, MOAs, clinical coordinators and site navigators. It also served as one of four designated testing sites for Health Care Workers in the Fraser region. The Central Park site location was generously donated by the City of Burnaby, and was designed and developed by the PCN partners — the Burnaby Division of Family Practice, Fraser Health and the City of Burnaby — who shared start-up and operating costs.
COVID-19 testing in Burnaby is now being conducted by Fraser Health out of a larger site, based at British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Burnaby campus. A new COVID-19 immunization clinic was also opened at Fortius in April of 2021.
