COVID-19 Rapid Screen Kits
Keep your employees and our community safe with
FREE Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Self Screening kits!
Please note: Updates to the provincial antigen testing guidance made on August 25th 2021 now recommend against the use of rapid antigen screening for fully-vaccinated individuals. In practice, this means that regardless of vaccination status, an individual may still choose to participate in rapid antigen screening and does not need to disclose their vaccination status to participate or not participate in sectors where screening is voluntary. These changes have been made to guidance to reflect the low likelihood of COVID-19 within fully vaccinated groups, which reduces the utility of screening and could result in an increase of false positive results, which we know are disruptive to businesses. This approach is informed by the findings of several expert panels.
