Employer Rapid Antigen Screening Pilot at Hospall Private Homecare. (COVID-19)

We are so excited to be chosen as an organization to be part of the Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario and Ontario Health for this pilot project.

This pilot project is to support the evaluation of the Employer Rapid Antigen Screening. The centralized collection of this data will help assess the value of the Panbio antigen test as a COVID-19 screening tool to support employee safety and business continuity in a variety of workplaces. Results from this data being collected will support an increased understanding of how rapid antigen testing could deploy more broadly to support provincial COVID-19 response activities.

As per guidelines set by MOH, Hospall will be screening our team now once to twice weekly. This will offer our team another layering of safe practice and more vigilance in keeping our most vulnerable clients safe. This will also help with surveillance and safety within our communities that we serve.

Hospall is very excited to be a part of this program. Life is a gift!
