COVID-19 RAPID SCREENING TEST KITS NOW AVAILABLE TO STRATFORD BUSINESSES

The StaySafe™ COVID-19 Rapid Screening Pilot is available free of charge to all small-medium sized Stratford and area businesses to detect the virus in staff not showing any symptoms. Funded by the Provincial and Federal Governments, the StaySafe™ program provides free rapid antigen point-of care tests for employees of businesses under 150 employees, in sectors considered essential and where employees cannot work from home or physically distance, to help keep workers and their families safe.

investStratford, Destination Stratford, the Stratford City Centre BIA and the Stratford and District Chamber of Commerce have worked with the Waterloo Region program collaborators, Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, Communitech and the Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce, to bring the StaySafe™ COVID-19 Rapid Screening Pilot here.

Starting April 26, orders placed before 3pm Friday will be available for Stratford pick-up on the following Monday at Destination Stratford (47 Downie St.) between 1:30-4:30pm. Stratford businesses wanting to order their kits immediately or more frequently can order and pick-up directly at the Communitech Hub in Kitchener (151 Charles Street West, Suite 100, Kitchener).

Businesses are asked to limit orders to a 2 week supply of rapid screening kits based on screening employees 2-3 times per week. PLEASE BRING YOUR ORDER NUMBER for pickup.

Visit the StaySafe™ website to order FREE rapid antigen screen kits for your Stratford business and then pick them up at the Destination Stratford office.
