How the NAC is responding to COVID-19

To ensure public safety during COVID-19, most of the NAC building, including our Box Office, remains closed to the public until further notice. The parking garage is open, but accessible only through exterior pedestrian doors (not from inside the building). More details.

COVID-19 Drive-Thru Assessment Centre in the NAC parking garage
Starting November 19, 2020, the Ottawa Hospital will operate a Covid-19 Drive-Thru Assessment Centre in the NAC parking garage. The Centre will ensure our fellow Ottawa residents have access to convenient and accessible Covid-19 testing options It will also provide shelter, comfort and warmth over the winter months to our community’s health care workers.

As a result, vehicle and pedestrian access to the NAC’s Albert Street garage entrance will be restricted during the day. We ask the public use one of the other garage entrances. The testing area is isolated from NAC performance venues and other public spaces. For more information about Covid-19 testing at the NAC, visit the Ottawa Public Health Health Web site.
