Free Rapid Screening Tests Kits Available for Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses under 150 employees! 
The goal of the program is to identify asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases of COVID-19 in the workplace that might otherwise be missed, helping to curb the spread in the workplace, at home and around the community. 

Please read and follow EACH step below to be eligible to receive Free Rapid Screening Test Kits.

Step 1: Training Video

  • Each company is to assign a Screening Supervisor Designate, who will be the contact person. This is the person that must complete the training and pick up the kits. We will not be able to provide kits to anybody who has not completed this training. The designate only needs to complete the training once, it is not required to be repeated to place subsequent orders.
  • The training includes a 12-minute video; please allow yourself sufficient time to watch the full video when you click through.

  • Please email 1) Business Name, 2) Your Screening Supervisor Designate Name, 3) How many staff do you have - so we know how many boxes to give you, 4) Email address, 5) Phone number
  • We will email you back with confirmation of your order and set up a date and time for pick up.  Pick-ups will be scheduled for Mondays & Thursday from 9am to 4 pm

Step 3: Day you Pick up your Screening Kits
