Why do this?
A COVID-19 rapid screening test can be performed anywhere (i.e. at your workplace) and does not require shipping a specimen to a lab for processing. It takes approximately 15 minutes to see the results. Regular and frequent testing increases the chances of early identification of cases.
How does the Program work?
- Small businesses select a representative from their company to be the “Screening Supervisor” responsible for the program
- Your Screening Supervisor signs up for this free program on this web page, completes the Program Agreement form (PASP), books a 15-minute appointment to pick up a two-week supply of kits, and reports their findings
- Employees administer the test themselves, with a gentle nasal swab, under the guidance of their Screening Supervisor
- Test results are ready in 15 minutes
- Employees are generally tested twice per week
- Reorder your kits on our website as needed
STEP 1: Assign a Screening Supervisor
Please assign a “Screening Supervisor” from your business to administer the COVID-19 Rapid Screening Tests. This person will be responsible for picking up the kits, watching a short training video, and for carrying out the program in your workplace. S/he will receive enough kits to test employees twice per week for two weeks.
The Screening Supervisor should be assigned to complete the rest of the steps below.
STEP 2: Complete the PASP Agreement
