Trouble Accessing Your Results? 
Due to the increase in positive cases and the volume of testing, processing may take longer than expected. Please call the testing centre, after hours, and leave us a message. We only have 1 phone line in the township building, which it is being used to call positive cases during our working hours, so the line will be busy during the day. If our Phone line is full please email northdurhamcac@lh.ca
