RAPID SCREENING TEST KITS
FOR BUSINESSES TO INCREASE CONSUMER
AND EMPLOYEE CONFIDENCE
It's quick. It's easy. It's free.
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 Provincial Antigen Screening Program (PASP). Through this initiative, OBoT will roll out free rapid tests for small and medium-sized businesses in Ottawa, in partnership with TCC Canada.
The Provincial Antigen Screening Program will provide free rapid antigen tests for employees of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). The tests will be distributed through participating local chambers of commerce and boards of trade in Ontario. Businesses (including non-chamber members) with 150 employees or less are welcome to participate in this program.
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 around the community in Ottawa. Priority should be given to testing unvaccinated employees.
