Dear Near North Parents and Guardians,
COVID-19 rapid antigen testing is now available at select Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaw Pharmacy locations for students, children and staff of the four school boards in the Nipissing and Parry Sound District.
COVID-19 testing is voluntary and will help to identify cases early, inform Public Health decisions, and manage outbreaks. Participants will need to be asymptomatic in order to be eligible to receive a COVID-19 rapid antigen test.
If you are interested in participating or are interested in having your child or dependent participate, please review the attached letter and provide your written consent to participate. For individuals under the age of 18 years old, signed consent by a parent or guardian will be required.
To book an appointment for a rapid antigen test, please call one of the locations from the participating list in the letter attached. Please remember to bring a printed copy of the Consent form included in this letter on the day of your test.
Please contact your child’s school if you require a hard copy of this letter.
Near North District School Board
