Why Do This?
The latest information from Health Canada suggests that up to 1/3 of people carrying the virus are asymptomatic, and over 50% of known cases were transmitted by an asymptomatic carrier. This makes it incredibly important to find asymptomatic carriers in order to combat the spread and get a more normalized community life.
A COVID-19 rapid screening test can be performed anywhere (i.e. at your workplace!) and does not require shipping a specimen to a lab for processing - it takes less than 15 minutes to see the results! Frequent testing increases the chances of early detection of cases.
How do I sign up?
Decide who will be the "Screening Supervisor" responsible for the program and have them watch the two short training videos. Review and sign the Participation Agreement and bring it with you when you come to pick up your first order! It's that simple. Once you have an agreement on file you can stop by the Chamber Building to restock any Tuesday or Thursday between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm.
