Free rapid antigen tests will be provided on a first come, first go basis at the Oshawa GO Station tomorrow morning, beginning at seven am.

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 test kits were handed out at the Pickering Go Station this morning. Sources say there were still plenty of kits available by 9:30 am. About 250 to 300 kits are allotted at each test blitz site.

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-19covid 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.
