The Ontario Chamber of Commerce’s COVID-19 Rapid Screening Initiative has reached our neck of the woods.

The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the provincial and federal governments, will roll out free Covid-19 rapid tests for small- and medium-sized businesses in Haliburton County.

The Initiative will provide free rapid antigen tests for employees of small and medium-sized businesses.

The goal of the program is to identify asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 in the workplace that might otherwise be missed, helping to curb the spread in the workplace, at home and around the community.

The kits will be ready for pick-up at the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce office at 195 Highlands St, Haliburton by appointment.
