Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing
Beginning October 15, 2020 we are offering asymptomatic COVID-19 testing at our pharmacy as part of Phase 2 of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care plan to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We have been selected to offer testing to high-risk individuals without symptoms in our pharmacy. This is a professional service offered to anyone at no-charge who meets the eligibility criteria:
You must not have any symptoms of COVID-19. Patients with symptoms must continue to receive testing at a COVID-19 Assessment Centre. More information on the closest Assessment Centre can be found on the Ontario COVID-19 website.
You must also belong to an at-risk group targeted for testing by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. High-risk groups are considered based on current public health recommendations and may change over time. If you belong to the any of the following groups, you qualify for COVID-19 testing in the pharmacy:
i. Residents, workers or visitors of long-term care homes
ii. Residents or workers of retirement homes
iii. Residents or workers in homeless shelters or other congregate settings
iv. International students who have passed their 14-day quarantine period
v. Farm workers
vi. Individuals who self-identify as Indigenous
vii. Staff working in schools (including supply and specialty teachers), school boards, and child care settings
What to expect
We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that we can offer this service effectively and safely. Our pharmacists have undergone additional training and education to be able to offer this test. We will be using full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will be conducting tests in a private and separate exam room within our pharmacy.
We will be conducting pre-screening over-the-phone to ensure patients qualify and that testing can proceed safely.
Our pharmacist will be conducting an Anterior (Shallow) Nasal Swab for specimen collection. After collection, the swab is sent by courier to the lab for analysis.
Test results will be reported to our pharmacy but can also be viewed online on the Ontario COVID-19 Test Results portal here.
