Ottawa just opened a new COVID-19 drive-thru centre at RCGT Park, an assessment centre where you book ahead online and drive on through. For the entire time, you remain inside your vehicle. Five city councillors have signed a letter calling for a COVID-19 testing center within close proximity to the heart of Canada’s Capital. Catherine McKenney, the representative for Somerset Ward, is one of them. They explain why a testing centre is needed closer to Downtown Ottawa on today’s edition of CFRA’s Ottawa Now.​ See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
