Where to get a rapid COVID-19 test this week (June 7-13)

Get a rapid test whether you're headed to work, a hang out with your bubble, or a patio.

By

Pre-booked PCR tests are widely available for all Nova Scotians. But if you're not a close contact or possible exposure, rapid pop-up tests are a great way to reassure yourself and your bubble while doing your part for public health.

Doctor Strang recommends everyone in the Halifax area get tested on a weekly basis, even if you're just going out for groceries and daily exercise. To get a rapid test you must be over the age of 16 and have no symptoms, recent travel or possible exposure to COVID-19.

Here's where the upcoming rapid-testing sites will be. When you go, dress for the weather, anticipate a long line and don't forget your mask!
