As the availability of COVID-19 testing becomes increasingly limited across the region, College of the Mainland (COM) reminds the community that free COVID-19 PCR testing is available to the public.

In partnership with Curative Inc., COM began offering the service in October 2021 as a part of the College’s ongoing COVID response efforts and mitigation strategy. With access to PCR testing becoming increasingly strained, College of the Mainland remains committed to providing the community with this much-needed resource during this critical time. Anyone needing COVID-19 testing is encouraged to register by visiting the Curative appointment website.

The PCR test is collected with a self-administered, shallow nasal swab, and results are typically provided within one to two days after arrival at the lab. Appointments are required and are available Monday - Thursday from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
