COVID Rapid Screening Kits

COVID Rapid Screening Program

The Lincoln Chambers of Commerce is proud to collaborate with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce on this important program for our local business communities.

All businesses must schedule a pick-up time online. Walk-ins are not accepted, and kits will not be distributed without an appointment.

If you have successfully booked an appointment, you will receive an email confirmation.

Eligibility

  • Businesses (including non-chamber members) with 150 employees or less. For businesses with over 150 employees, please order directly from the Ontario government portal.
  • Private career colleges and private-designated learning institutions (post-secondary). Tests are available for employers, contractors, volunteers, and students attending campus.
  • Private schools and public schools (elementary and secondary). Tests are available for employees, bus drivers, and regular visitors.

Why Do This?

A COVID-19 rapid screening test can be performed anywhere (i.e. at your workplace) and does not require shipping a specimen to a lab for processing. It takes approximately 15 minutes to see the results. Regular and frequent testing increases the chances of early identification of cases

How Does The Program Work?

  • Small businesses select a representative from their company to be the “Screening Supervisor” responsible for the program
  • Your Screening Supervisor signs up for this free program on this web page, completes the Program Agreement form (PASP), books a 15-minute appointment to pick up a two-week supply of kits, and reports their findings in a timely manner.
  • Employees administer the test themselves, with a gentle nasal swab, under the guidance of their Screening Supervisor
  • Test results are ready in 15 minutes
  • The Screening Supervisor reports the total number of tests completed, number of positive tests, number of negative tests, etc. on this web page
  • Employees are generally tested twice per week
  • Reorder your kits as needed
  • Kits may not be reordered if results have not been submitted on at least 75% of kits previously received.

Thanks to our Chamber partner, H & R Block Beamsville & Grimsby, for providing tote bags for pick-up.
