COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit Distribution Centre

The Saint John Region Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, has launched the COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit Distribution Centre.  Through this initiative, participating Chamber of Commerce and Boards of Trade will roll out free tests for small and medium-sized businesses in communities across the country. 

Businesses (Including non-Chamber members) with 300 employees or less are welcome to participate in this program.  The goal of the program is to identify symptomatic 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.

By regularly testing symptomatic employees, the goal of the program is to provide an additional layer of protection that will help protect workers and clients alike - along with the livelihoods of small business owners by reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our workplaces and communities.

Data collection is also a key component of the program, and all participating businesses will need to submit their screening results regularly. This accumulated data will be reported to Health Canada and the New Brunswick Department of Health.
