A right step in the right direction

This past week, Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws announced that they would make rapid COVID-19 tests available to consumers. 

This is a right step in the right direction in terms of making antigen tests available to everyone. We believe that rapid antigen tests are a powerful tool in stopping the spread of COVID-19, especially if they are readily available whenever and wherever they are needed. 

Enter home testing.

We started Haven Testing because we think everyone should have access to these tests. Because it’s when antigen tests are adopted widely that they can have a meaningful impact on stopping the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.

We are working to make these tests as accessible as possible by keeping costs as low as we can and making them available for next-day shipping. That way, you have tests when you need them. 

Broader public education is still needed and so are programs that help people gain access to these tests. We encourage you to consult the experts and decide for yourself if antigen tests are right for you.
