With complaints of long lines and hours-long waits, there are now more options for people looking to get COVID-19 tests, with some conditions.
Up to 60 pharmacies are offering the appointment-only tests to certain asymptomatic individuals. That includes those with loved ones in long-term care homes, close contacts of a case or high-risk workers.
Premier Doug Ford says that will ease the strain on the system.
The government also announced assessment centres will focus on testing those with symptoms, exposure to a case and people involved in outbreak investigations.
Ford had previously said anyone who wanted a test could get one at an assessment centre but changed that message yesterday.
