The COVID-19 Testing Center operated by Canton-Potsdam Hospital will be closing its Canton site at the end of the day on Friday, March 4, 2022. It is located in the EJ Noble Medical Building, 80 East Main Street, Canton.
The closure of this testing location is related directly to the downward trend of COVID-positive cases and the declining need for on-site testing.
St. Lawrence Health (SLH) continues to operate three regional COVID-19 Testing centers.Anyone who has been exposed, or thinks they may have contracted the virus, should be tested at one of these sites and reserve the Emergency Department for emergent care needs. If you have symptoms requiring immediate attention, report to your nearest Emergency Department.
Testing appointments can be scheduled online through SLH, or by calling the SLH COVID Hotline (daily) at 315.261.6240.
