As part of an enhanced testing strategy, the province of Ontario is launching a blitz of free take-home rapid antigen COVID-19 tests. Most sites will have free take-home tests, and some will offer free testing on-site.

The ontario.ca webpage stresses that these pop-up locations are meant for people without symptoms of COVID-19 and people who have not had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19. These pop-up locations are not meant for those currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. These tests are meant for asymptomatic people to use an additional screening tool. Please do not visit these pop-centres if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19.

A full list of pop-up locations is here. It includes Scarborough Town Centre (Friday, December 19), Yorkdale Mall (Saturday, December 18), Upper Canada Mall (Sunday, December 19) and more.

If you're not able to make it to one of these locations, you can purchase tests online. The current best price we were able to find is $49.95 for a five-pack at Canadian Shield. If you're symptomatic or have experienced an exposure, you can find a free testing location in Ontario here.

Residents of other provinces can book free tests online at these sites:

    • Don't even bother to visit Y&E. No sign of anything. I could see tumbleweeds.

    • Idiots are going to take these to re-sell on Kijiji. They're the new toilet paper.

    • I stopped watching the news, so I'm out of touch.

      What's the benefit of these tests? Why not just go to emergency if you suspect you have covid?

      you test yourself
      if you are positive, you don't go out and spread it to anyone else.

      if you are feeling life threatening conditions, then you'd go to emergency or call 911.

      These are meant as a screening device, i.e. I want to visit my grandparents, but I want to make sure I don't have COVID, so I take the test, wait 15min, and then go (if negative).

      They are only intended to be used if you have zero symptoms, so a testing center won't accept you for a test.

      If you have symptoms you MUST go to a testing center.

      You mean a lot more idiots. Another execution mis-step by our Gov't ppl. FYI They were on Kijiji but it looks like they're trying to cut down the reseller market.

      Instead of giving em for free like "Halloween trick or treat" where some ppl will go line up again and again from place to place collecting for resale, encourage ppl to get their shots by giving them a kit after they get their shots. This way it's one kit per person.

      Or they can drop it house to house in neighbourhoods where there's high transmission.

    • This distribution of the tests is a complete joke. How about just giving everyone a kit when they get a vaccine to start? This government has some crazy fixation with alcohol.

      Anyway, I saw that they were handing it out at my local LCBO on the government website and went this morning. There was a line up, but the employee outside said they didn’t have any and had no idea if/when they would arrive. I immediately left and now I see the location is no longer listed.

    • That person tweeting is an idiot. Premier Ford cannot be absolutely everywhere and do everything personally....he has a team behind him.

      This is execution and logistics done by ppl down the line on the Gov't side, at courier/delivery companies and at the distribution points [like LCBO]. These ppl tweeting expect Ford to drive the kits to each location personally and also open up boxes and stand there and hand em out. Maybe these ppl should get a job rather than spend all their time on Twitter. End rant. Stupid.

      From what I understood Rapid Antigen test tells you only if you are contiguous or not.

      To know if you have Coronavirus, you need to get PCR.

      My scientific analysis 🤪
