With no mandatory mask mandates for Ontario students this fall, COVID testing can play an important role in keeping you and your family aware of your status.
What Are The Next Steps?
After receiving positive COVID-19 test results, either by Rapid Antigen Test or RT-PCR test, you know you have to isolate until you are better, but what are the next steps to get back to your personal and professional lives?
COVID Travel Test can provide you with the next steps. We offer a service called Letter Of Recovery, in which you are assessed by our on-staff Healthcare professional. Should the assessment indicate that you have recovered from COVID-19, we will issue you a Letter of Recovery stating just that. If you've had a positive test, and have recovered from COVID-19, this is just the documentation you'll need to reintegrate into your personal and professional lives.

- After testing positive for COVID-19, when can I be assessed to receive a Letter Of Recovery?
The certificate can be issued at the earliest on the 11th day after the initial positive coronavirus test and is based on either a previously confirmed COVID-19 infection or a positive Rapid Antigen or RT-PCR test.
ATTENTION: Each country has different requirements as to when the recovery assessment and test would need to be done. Each patient is responsible for understanding the requirements around retesting if they are looking to leave Canada.
- I tested positive for COVID-19 with an at-home Rapid Test. Can I use this as my first positive Test?
No, at-home tests are not admissable for Letters of Recovery.
As noted in the labeling for authorized over-the-counter antigen tests: Negative results should be treated as presumptive. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions.
To improve results, an RT-PCR test or a Rapid antigen test from an organization institution should be done to confirm the accuracy of the test. Book Now ›
