Newfoundland and Labrador’s online portal for COVID-19 test results is back up and running after the cyberattack on the province’s health systems, according to the Department of Health.

The department tweeted Sunday morning that the portal was back online.

In an email to CBC News, a spokesperson for the department said the portal was slowly brought back online late Saturday night.

However, the health department said people should still follow the advice on isolation requirements from public health if applicable.

The test results portal had been out of commission since the cyberattack first began disrupting health-care services on Oct. 30. Many appointments, tests and surgeries were cancelled and services were pushed back decades, shifting to a paper-based system.
