January 10, 2022 – Between the disaster that is the EOHU and traditional News Media in Cornwall, the availability and information regarding CoVid testing kits is a SCANDAL.
The current Eastern Ontario Health Unit web page says there’s nothing happening with rapid testing, yet the traditional news outlets are reporting that kits ARE available this week and that the Cornwall Square Mall (WTF?), is in charge of distribution with a ticketing system, but real information is sorely lacking.
So here’s the best information available…
There will be three pop-ups at the Cornwall Square this week scheduled for: Thursday, January 13th, Friday, January 14th, and Saturday, January 15th.
Tickets are supposed to be given out (first-come ~ first-served) on Tuesday, January 11th between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (all told there are 3,000 tickets available)
The distribution locations will be located on the exterior north side of Cornwall Square (not the southwest corner as shown in the S-F photo)… but look for signage.
And here’s what you get (if it’s the RapidGen)…
– Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test Kit (5-Pack)
– 5-Pack of Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Tests (Nasal or Nasopharyngeal swabs)
– Each Rapid Test Kit Contains:
– 5 x Test cassettes
– 5 x Individually packed swabs
– 5 x individually packed buffers
– 5 x tubes and nozzles
– 1 x Tube stand
Good luck, and good health to all.
