How’s Your Rapid Test Supply?

Over the past few weeks, BC’s Provincial Health Services Authority has sent over 200,000 rapid test kits to long-term care homes to help combat the spread of COVID-19. We want to evaluate how that rollout is working in practice for SafeCare BC’s members. This will help inform our ongoing work to communicate the needs of our members to the Ministry of Health, so that BC’s care workers receive the support they need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please have the person responsible for the rapid testing program at your site complete this survey.
