Rapid Testing 

The Sudbury East Chamber of Commerce is providing free rapid tests for businesses in our community with 150 or less employees.

Chamber members and non chamber members are welcome to sign up for the SECC free rapid testing as our goal is to help curb the spread of covid-19 in the workplace within the Sudbury East community.

What you need to know 

  • Rapid antigen testing is an additional screening method that can help stop the spread of covid 19 and keep workplaces open. 

  • Organizations can test on-site and get results in about 15 minutes without shipping to a lab.

  • Rapid antigen testing may be performed 2-3 times per week during the first 2 steps of Ontario's reopening plan. During step 3 of the reopening plan, rapid antigen testing may be performed 1-2 times per week.

How to order your test

  • After filling out the form below, our BDO will contact you via email for more information on when and where your tests will be available for pick up 

Who to test

  • Only test people who have no covid-19 symptoms and are not a close contact of someone with covid-19. 

  • Vaccinated individuals should continue to be included in rapid antigen testing initiatives and continue to follow all other public health measures in the workplace.

​These screening kits are not for anyone showing symptoms related to COVID-19. Employees must immediately leave the workplace and arrange a PCR test with Public Health Sudbury & Districts within 24 hours if they are exhibiting symptoms. Screening kits are an added measure but all other PPE and distancing protocols must continue to be followed regardless of screening. 

Who can perform a test

  • Rapid antigen tests can be performed by a health professional (both regulated and unregulated) or trained individuals.

  • The Ministry of Health has also provided a clinical endorsement for voluntary self-swabbing under the supervision of a trained individual.

  • Each business will have need to assign a Designated Screening Supervisor, who will be the Chamber’s contact person throughout the process. They will be responsible for placing the order, picking up the order, and reporting all necessary data back to the chamber.
