EDMONTON — Alberta Health Services (AHS) will be closing operations at the COVID-19 testing centre located at the Edmonton EXPO Centre at the end of today, as demand for COVID-19 testing continues to decrease.
COVID-19 testing services for those who are eligible, continue to be available at the five remaining assessment centres in the Edmonton Zone, which are able to accommodate the testing volumes currently being completed at the EXPO Centre.
More than 470,000 swabs have been completed by staff at the site since September 2020 when the testing site opened. AHS is grateful to staff for their flexibility and commitment to the changing needs of the pandemic response and the care they have shown to nearly half a million clients who have come to the site.
This location has played an important role in the Edmonton Zone’s pandemic response and AHS is grateful for the tremendous partnership and support of the City of Edmonton and Edmonton EXPO Centre.
Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
