Coronavirus: Ontario to expand asymptomatic COVID-19 testing in pharmacies
The swabbing started at these locations on Wednesday. These stores join a growing list of pharmacies across Ontario that are doing testing for asymptomatic individuals.
In order to book a test at the Shoppers locations in Kingston and in Belleville, the pharmacies ask that you call ahead and answer a list of questions. Once this is completed, you will be able to book an appointment for your test.
If you are symptomatic and need to be tested, you should visit your region’s designated COVID-19 assessment centre.
