Testing For Events

Events Can Be A Safe Space

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the rules and regulations surrounding events have been in constant flux, but the constants have centered on the importance of ensuring those attending events with more than 10 people have been properly tested for COVID-19 with negative results.

If you're planning an event and wish to make it easy for those attending to have access to a Rapid Antigen or RT-PCR test, or if you're attending an event and require proof of a negative test result, COVID Travel Test can provide you with your COVID testing needs.

    The COVID -19 Antigen rapid test is also not covered by OHIP and is available at a cost of $40 (tax included) per test.

  • What do we need to bring for testing?

    At the time of booking, each person being tested will require the following information at their appointment:

    • Passport for identification (for each person booked)

  • How close to my event should I get tested?

    This would largely be up to the event coordinators to stipulate, but typically we recommend a negative test result within 1-3 days of the event.
