A new COVID-19 drive-thru assessment centre has opened on the lower level of the National Arts Centre’s parking garage to support the health of our community.
This assessment centre will help ensure our fellow Ottawa residents have access to convenient and accessible COVID-19 testing option. It will also provide shelter, comfort and warmth over the winter months to our community’s health care workers.
We believe it is important to do our part to help our community while remaining committed to the health and safety of our employees, artists, and audiences at the NAC.
Although most of our current artistic programming continues to be offered online, some live performances are taking place at the NAC in front of small audiences of up to 50 people. Rest assured that we have put in place safety protocols to ensure our employees, artists and audiences are not affected by the presence of the new COVID-19 drive-thru testing site, which mostly operates during daytime hours and is located in an isolated area of our parking garage.
