Parents and guardians can now get their children's COVID-19 test results online, Public Health announced Tuesday.

MyHealthNB website gives people access to their COVID-19 test results. Everyone who is tested for the disease, including children, gets a MyHealthNB registration sheet with their name and registration code.

To see their child's results, a parent first has to register for their own MyHeathNB. Once logged into the COVID-19 results application, the parent can add the child using the child's registration code and view the test results.

"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," Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health, said in the statement.
