Ontario changes rules to allow testing at pharmacies
The Ontario government has quietly amended regulations to allow pharmacists to administer COVID-19 tests.
The change dated last Friday means a pharmacist does not have to obtain a specimen collection centre licence in order to administer the test.
Premier Doug Ford said last week the province would soon roll out pharmacy testing for those who are asymptomatic to help cut down on long lines at testing centres.
No announcement has been made but Health Minister Christine Elliot said today that pharmacies are probably an appropriate venue to test people who are not exhibiting symptoms.
