Get tested for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) virus
or antibodies before international travel
Do you need COVID-19 testing before travelling outside Canada? Dynacare is pleased to offer fast, reliable testing at three dedicated Montreal and Laval locations:
475, boulevard de la Côte-Vertu
8560, rue Saint-Hubert
1885 rue Maurice Gauvin
The following three options are available by appointment at our COVID-19 traveler testing locations. Before booking your appointment, please confirm which tests are required by the country or countries you are visiting.
The COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test is a molecular test that identifies an active infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the time of testing. The test looks for viral RNA in a sample of secretions collected using a nose and throat swab. If the virus is detected, the test is positive, which means that the person tested currently has COVID‑19.
Information to Travelers Requiring Proof of a Negative PCR Test: Dynacare utilizes three different molecular tests to detect COVID‑19 virus in clinical samples. Two of the tests are PCR-based (Roche cobas SARS-CoV-2 and Thermo Fisher TaqPath COVID‑19 Combo), and the third (Hologic Aptima SARS-CoV-2) uses a different method (TMA) that is analogous to PCR. All three tests can be used interchangeably to determine the presence or absence of COVID‑19 virus in a sample.
The COVID-19 Serology test is a blood test that identifies a previous infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This test detects the presence of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) antibodies in your blood, which result from a COVID-19 infection in the past. For greatest accuracy, it uses a 2-step, double confirmation process when a previous infection is detected.
The COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Saliva Gargle (Gargarism) Test is available for asymptomatic individuals at select Dynacare locations.
No Traveler Test appointment is required. Please check with the country or countries that you are visiting as to whether this testing method suits your travel requirements.
Saliva Gargle Tests are available at the following locations:
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, new or worsening chronic cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, decrease or loss of sense of taste or smell, chills, headache, unexplained fatigue/malaise/muscle aches, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea/abdominal pain, pink eye, or runny nose/nasal congestion without other known cause. If you think you may have an infection, call your local Public Health Unit to be referred to the right resource.
