Answer

Yes. The Ontario government recently announced that it is waiving the 3-month waiting period for OHIP coverage. This means that you can be assessed, tested, or treated for COVID-19 right away. COVID-19 testing is free of charge. Also, people don’t need to renew expired or expiring OHIP cards at this time.
