GTA pharmacies are now testing asymptomatic individuals

Sep 25 2020, 6:12 am

Select GTA pharmacies will start testing for asymptomatic individuals today.

On Wednesday, Premier Doug Ford announced that up to 60 pharmacies in the province would begin testing by appointment only, for people who show no COVID-19 symptoms.

The province is no longer testing asymptomatic people who have not had contact with COVID-19 cases or outbreaks, and are not in high-risk workplaces.

Pharmacies will also be prioritizing patients who are frontline workers, healthcare professionals and other professionals who are at higher risk of possibly contracting the virus.

This announcement is part of the province’s fall preparedness plan, Keeping Ontarians Safe: Preparing for Future Waves of COVID-19.

More pharmacy locations will make testing available in the coming weeks.

“Individuals must follow all public health measures when going for a test, including wearing a mask, practising physical distancing, and frequent handwashing. If you are feeling ill on the date of your appointment, please stay home and re-schedule your test,” the province notes.
