OTTAWA - In partnership with the Queensway Carleton Hospital, the Ottawa Senators (@Senators) and the Senators Community Foundation today announced that two parking lots at Canadian Tire Centre (@CdnTireCtr) will serve as an alternate COVID-19 testing centre beginning this afternoon. The pop-up site, which will serve as a lineup drive-through location, will not require advance appointment.
"Anything that we can do to help stem the tide against COVID-19 in our community is something that we're eager to do," said Ottawa Senators Community Foundation executive director Chris Phillips. "Providing these lots at Canadian Tire Centre will help ease what's quickly becoming a considerable backlog at other testing centres in Ottawa. It's an effort that Eugene and the entire Senators' organization wholeheartedly endorses and one we'll be proud to continue offering for as long as is needed."
While the expected duration of the site remains to be determined, Canadian Tire Centre's Lots 5 and 6 will begin providing COVID-19 screening tests today until 6 p.m. and will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 20.
