RAPID TESTING KITS- KINGSTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

In partnership with the federal and provincial governments, The Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce has acquired rapid COVID-19 test kits for distribution to local businesses.

Kits are available at no charge to all businesses in Kingston. Each business is able to pick up a two-week supply allowing two tests per week per employee at a time. Participating businesses will be required to track and report all results weekly to the Chamber, and those results will be shared with the Ontario and federal Ministries of Health. Businesses are also required to report positive or inconclusive cases to Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Public Health.

The distribution centre for the test kits will be located at the Alliance Business Centre, 299 Concession Street in Kingston. The centre will be operated by volunteers from Kingston’s local Rotary clubs between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday to Thursday, though pick-ups will be by appointment only.

The rapid antigen detection (RAD) tests acquired by the Chamber provide results in as little as 15 minutes and can be used by non-medical personnel. These tests are 90 percent accurate and can be used to help identify COVID cases quickly, ensuring the business can best protect its employees and customers safe in the event of a COVID case in their facility.
