Description
Description (Service) The pharmacy locations listed on the website will be offering free testing by appointment only to individuals with no symptoms of COVID-19 and eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative directed by the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Long-Term Care.  
 
Shoppers Drug Mart is offering a Rapid Antigen Screening for COVID-19 for asymptomatic individuals not eligible for the free testing at a cost of $40. This screening is available at select locations. The results can be ready in 15-20 minutes. This test is NOT used to diagnose COVID-19 and a preliminary positive result will require a follow-up COVID-19 test at one of the designated assessment centres. For more information, check the website 
 
Individuals must follow all public health measures when going for a test, including wearing a mask, practicing physical distancing, and frequent handwashing. If you are feeling ill on the date of your appointment, please stay home and re-schedule your test.
