Children’s COVID-19 results available online

New Brunswick also announced that parents or guardians can now access the results of a child’s COVID-19 test online.

“The addition of children’s test results to the secure online web portal will provide greater access and relieve some stress for parents or guardians,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province’s chief medical officer of health.

The records can be accessed online through the MyHealthNB website. Patients are given registration sheets with their name and registration code when tested for COVID-19 at assessment sites or emergency departments.

Adults must first register their own MyHealthNB account to view a child’s testing results.
