Hamilton and Oshawa residents will have access to quick antigen tests today (Thursday) as long as stocks last.
RATs are used only as an additional screening tool for asymptomatic individuals.
They are currently available at Oshawa GO Station and from 6 p.m. 9 a.m. at the CF Lime Ridge Mall on Wentworth St. and Hamilton.
People without COVID-19 symptoms, or who have not recently been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, will be able to download a package of free tests from pop-up sites in various places in GTA.
Rapid antigen tests cannot diagnose COVID-19. Anyone who receives a package of tests at home and gets a positive result should isolate themselves and order a laboratory-based test to confirm the result.
You can find the provincial tool to find test sites in Ontario online.
