Free rapid antigen tests are being provided at the Pickering GO Station right now while supplies last.

Ontario is launching a holiday testing blitz to offer voluntary rapid antigen screening to individuals free of charge at pop-up sites across the province. This initiative is part of the government’s enhanced COVID-19covid 19 testing strategy to mitigate the increased risk of transmission over the holiday season.

The tests arrived at the Pickering Go Station at seven o’clock this morning.

Throughout December to mid-January, up to two million rapid tests will be provided free of charge at pop-up sites in high-traffic locations such as malls, retail settings, holiday markets, public libraries and transit hubs.

People without symptoms of COVID-19 or people who have not had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19covid 19 will be able to pick up a package of free tests from a pop-up site, while supplies last, or get a free test performed on-site.

Most sites will distribute free take-home rapid antigen test kits, and some will offer testing on-site. Every person that receives a package of tests or gets a test on-site will be provided with easy-to-understand information and resources about rapid antigen screening and COVID-19covid 19 vaccination.

One test kit per person.

There will be a pop-up site tomorrow morning at seven at the Oshawa GO Station.
