Rapid covid-19 test

Mississauga residents who want to pick up a free COVID-19 rapid tests can do so this morning at Square One Shopping Centre at 9:00 a.m (Dec. 29).

You can also pick up COVID-19 rapid tests in Southern Ontario locations that include:
– Pickering, Go Station
– Upper Canada Mall, Newmarket
– Scarborough Town Centre
– Hillcrest Mall, Richmond Hill
– CF Lime Ridge Mall, Hamilton

The availability of test sites and test kits comes as part of the Ontario government’s latest response to surging cases of the virus due to the onset of the Omicron variant.

Ontario has made available two million rapid test kits to be provided free of charge through mid-January at pop-up testing sites in high-traffic settings such as malls, other retail areas, holiday markets, public libraries and transit hubs.

In Mississauga, test kits are available for people who are asymptomatic and have not recently been in contact with someone with COVID-19.

The following pop-up locations are offering those services:

  • Square One: mall hours as supplies last

Test kits are limited to one per person and people visiting the pop-up sites must wear a mask and follow other public health measures on-site.

Ontario government officials say the holiday season testing blitz is intended to provide an additional layer of protection against COVID-19 and the Omicron variant.

The undertaking is part of the Province’s Enhanced COVID-19 Testing Strategy.
