Select Ontario pharmacies will soon be able to start offering COVID-19 tests for symptomatic people. Currently, pharmacies can only test people without symptoms who have not been in contact with an infected person.

Premier Doug Ford says the drug stores will have adhere to strict public health measures to protect all customers and staff.

“They’re going to have dedicated lines going into the pharmacy,” said Premier Doug Ford. “We’re going to have the protocols in place just like when COVID was at its peak.”

Participating pharmacies will be expected to have a dedicated space to perform the tests, physical distancing, time between tests to allow for cleaning, and put up signage indicating the location provides symptomatic testing.

The pharmacies – if they opt in – will soon offer the PCR swab tests and will also be able to serve as drop-off points for at-home tests.

The stores will be listed on the government website once up and running.
