Long Sault Pharmacy now offers appointment-based asymptomatic COVID-19 testing services publicly funded for eligible patients and private testing for travel purposes. These are real-time PCR Tests or NAAT using an anterior nasal swab. WE DO NOT TEST ANYONE WITH ACTIVE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS. We now also offer Health Canada and FDA-approved BTNX’s Rapid Response Rapid Antigen Test, which results in about 15 minutes.
We also recommend people get the COVID-19 tracing app before their appointment.

We now also offer Health Canada and FDA-approved BTNX’s Rapid Response Rapid Antigen Test, which results in about 15 minutes. Some countries, such as the US, may accept a Rapid Antigen Test combined with our attestation letter in place of a PCR test result.

They would strongly advise patients to contact the airline directly to determine if there are any special requirements for their country of travel. This test is NOT TO BE USED FOR DIAGNOSIS but as a screening tool only.
