NORTH VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A parking lot on the North Shore has been transformed into a COVID-19 assessment centre, giving people in that community another option for on-demand testing.
The centre at Londsale Avenue and 23 Street will be open for walk-in or drive-through tests daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“British Columbia’s COVID-19 response has been about adapting and responding quickly to changing needs as the pandemic continues in our province,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health in a release.
“The new North Vancouver COVID-19 assessment centre is the second to open this week in the region and will help ensure that assessment and testing is broadly available to people experiencing symptoms, when they need it.”
Anyone wanting a test will have to wear a mask, and will need a BC Services or Care card.
A complete list of testing locations is available from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
