For Small and Medium Sized Businesses under 150 Employees

Screening people in the workplace with rapid antigen testing will help identify individuals with COVID-19 to help protect others from exposure and provide much needed data about viral prevalence within job sites and communities across Canada.

The goal of this program is to identify individuals who are asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic to prevent them from spreading the COVID-19 virus in the workplace, at home and in the community.

The Lindsay + District Chamber of Commerce located at 180 Kent Street West, Lindsay, Ontario will act as a distribution centre for Rapid Antigen Screening kits to be used for self-screening in the workplace under the guidance of proper Health and Safety Guidelines provided.

What you need to know

1. Each business or organization should assign a Rapid Antigen Test 'Screening Supervisor Designate', who will be the contact person. This person is responsible for overseeing the testing onsite and reporting. The Screening Supervisor Designate must view the training video and pass the test.

2. Place your order by email to rapidtesting@lindsaychamber.com. You will receive a confirmation of order email with instructions for next steps.
