Lac La Biche and District Chamber of Commerce offering free COVID-19 rapid test kits

The Lac La Biche and District Chamber of Commerce has joined with Chambers of Commerce from across the province to distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to businesses free of charge.

This program provides the opportunity to businesses of all sizes to supply rapid testing for their employees. The goal with the rapid testing kits is to ensure employees who are a-symptomatic may have the virus can avoid entering the workplace, thus avoiding the risk of spreading COVID-19 among their coworkers or your clientele.

The test kits include non-invasive Abbott Panbio nasal swabs and can be easily administered by employers. The tests can return results in 15 to 20 minutes – much faster and easier than traditional or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 testing.

For more information contact Karen Collins (780) 623-2818 or email [email protected]

Test Kits will be available at the Lac La Biche & District Chamber of Commerce Office located at 9910 – 101 Avenue. (Lac La Biche Museum & Visitor Information Centre) Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
