Red Deer Chamber is offering COVID rapid testing kits.
Through a partnership with the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Chambers of Commerce, the Red Deer and District Chamber will now be providing COVID-19 rapid testing kits to central Alberta businesses and non-profit organizations.
Chamber membership is not required. But all participating businesses are responsible for ensuring that anyone administering the test is adequately trained. To assist with this, Alberta has made training resources available online.
Businesses are also required to report back to the chamber weekly about the number of tests performed and how many had a positive result and how many were confirmed by PCR testing. This information will be shared with Alberta Health.
Premier Jason Kenney said, “This partnership gives businesses another leg up to move our economy forward. By making it easier to access rapid testing kits when and where they need them, we are providing businesses with a vital tool to protect their workers and the Albertans they serve.”
