Why offer Rapid Antigen Screening to your employees?

  • Rapid Antigen Screening identifies the asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic carriers of the COVID-19 virus at a point where their viral load is high and they are likely to be shedding the virus and potentially infecting others
  • Offering COVID screening to your employees offsite allows privacy, safety, and is a more economical solution than on-site testing.
  • Rapid Antigen Screening is less expensive, particularly on-site
  • The results are available within a faster turnaround time than PCR testing
  • Rapid Antigen Testing is effective at detecting COVID-19 when the virus is most infectious, helping to stop the spread and providing a higher degree of confidence to your employees and your customers

How frequently should
you test?

How frequently should
you test?

According to Ontario’s Ministry of Health guidelines (found here), frequent testing is recommended. For asymptomatic individuals in high prevalence areas (zones identified as yellow/orange/red/grey) specimen collection and screening should be performed 2-3 times per week. In low prevalence areas (green zones), specimen collection and screening should be performed 1-2 times per week. 

What if an employee’s test is positive?

What if an employee’s test is positive?

Rapid antigen testing is recommended for screening purposes and does not diagnose an acute COVID-19 infection. When compared to the PCR test, rapid antigen testing has a higher risk of producing both a false negative and a false positive result and therefore recommended for screening purposes only. 

If an individual receives positive results from rapid antigen testing, this must be confirmed with laboratory-based PCR testing to confirm the positive.
