Drop-in COVID-19 testing in the Calgary zone is being transitioned to the Bow Trail assessment centre — the former Greyhound station — which AHS says is better suited to accommodate people for both booked and drop-in testing.

The Richmond Road Diagnostic and Treatment Centre will still offer COVID-19 testing by appointment but will be directing drop-in patients to the Bow Trail site.

“If they indicate that they have no means to get to the Bow Trail site, the staff at Richmond Road will do their best to provide the drop-in test there,” AHS said in a statement.

Though there still isn’t evidence of in-school transmission at this time, a public health investigation is underway at St. Wilfrid Elementary School to catch any acquired cases quickly, Alberta Health said in a statement. Being added to the “watch” list means there are five or more cases where the disease could have been acquired or transmitted in the school.
