Rapid-test kit distribution – registration required
You must register on the provincial government site to book an appointment to obtain a kit at one of the new distribution sites.
Changes to the provincial program
The provincial government has made changes to the COVID-19 rapid test kit distribution program.
Anyone who wishes to obtain a rapid-test kit, regardless of their age, can get one if they have symptoms of COVID-19, in accordance with the new testing requirements adopted at the beginning of 2022.
Asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended for the general public.
A positive rapid test no longer requires PCR confirmation if the individual is not part of a vulnerable setting or priority group for PCR. An individual who has a positive rapid test result is considered to be a positive COVID-19 case. These individuals must follow the updated guidance for positive cases, which is available on the provincial government’s website.
