REGINA CHAMBER ENCOURAGES BUSINESS OWNERS TO USE SHA RAPID TESTING PROGRAM
The Regina & District Chamber of Commerce supports the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s (SHA) new rapid testing workplace initiative.
“Most importantly, using the rapid testing program will help keep workers and their families safe,” said John Hopkins, CEO of the Regina & District Chamber of Commerce. “As Saskatchewan continues to roll-out its successful vaccination and re-opening strategy, rapid testing provides an opportunity to further increase consumer confidence against COVID-19 in the workplace.”
Rapid antigen tests are not a diagnostic test, but are used to screen asymptomatic people for COVID-19. Health officials strongly recommend that people who receive a positive test result immediately self-isolate and call 811 for further instructions, such as scheduling a confirmatory test through a SHA testing centre.

“We are proud to work with the provincial government during the COVID-19 recovery phase and together we will build a stronger and more resilient province,” added Hopkins. “Our focus continues to be helping local businesses reopen safely and we strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated.”
