Beginning May 7, constructions organizations looking to provide COVID-19 screening at their workplace can see if they are eligible to receive free rapid antigen tests through the Ontario Together website.
The COVID-19 Testing for Organizations page provides a ‘one-stop shop’ to apply for rapid antigen test kits through the Provincial Antigen Screening Program. The website will help an organization determine their eligibility for free tests, then intake them into the program providing all the necessary guidance and information about how to order tests and set up a screening clinic on-site.
For organizations not eligible to participate in the Provincial Antigen Screening Program, the COVID-19 Testing for Organizations page has information about alternative places to access or purchase rapid antigen tests.

Role of the Government of Ontario
Through the Provincial Antigen Screening Program, the Government of Ontario provides free rapid antigen tests to high-risk communities, in-scope organizations and essential workplaces.
Centralizing the process to access rapid antigen tests through the Ontario Together website has been led by the Ministry of Health, in collaboration with Ontario Digital Services, Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, Ministry of Economic Development Job Creation and Trade, and Government Services Integration Cluster.
The Ministry of Health also provides rapid antigen tests to support additional antigen test distribution channels, including through Chambers of Commerce and the Creative Destruction Lab Rapid Screening Consortium.
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, the Ministry of Health will continue to support more sectors in accessing rapid antigen tests.
