The testing strategy for COVID‑19 in Québec takes each region’s specific context into account. The number of tests available in each region is calculated based on the size of the population, but also on the intensity of community transmission observed there.
Designated testing clinics, designated assessment clinics and mobile clinics have been set up to ensure access to a test for those who require one based on indications established by public health.

Prioritization of testing
Testing is prioritized based on the highest probability of finding cases in order to quickly begin investigations and contact tracing and thereby control outbreaks.
If you receive a call and see Santé publique displayed on your telephone, it is important to answer and cooperate with the public health authorities.
