FREE Rapid Antigen Screening Kits
The Ottawa Board of Trade (OBoT), the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Ontario and Canadian governments, have launched the COVID-19 Rapid Screening Initiative.
Through this initiative, OBoT, in partnership with Invest Ottawa, is rolling out FREE rapid antigen tests for small and medium-sized businesses in Ottawa with 150 employees or less. The goal of the program is to identify asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 in the workplace that might otherwise be missed, helping to curb the spread in the workplace, at home and in our community.
In Ottawa, distribution is partially sponsored by Commissionaires Ottawa, whose security professionals have been on the front lines during the pandemic with duties that include: COVID-19 screenings, temperature checks, safety patrols, and enforcement of COVID-19 protocols.
