Test to Protect Kids: At-Home COVID-19 Rapid Tests for Pre-Primary to Grade 6

Test to Protect Kids: At-Home COVID-19 Rapid Tests for Pre-Primary to Grade 6

To make testing more accessible, and to support early detection of COVID-19, Nova Scotia is introducing a take-home testing pilot program for families with children under the age of 12.

As part of this pilot program, AVRCE schools distributed take-home COVID-19 rapid testing kits to families of students in Pre-Primary to Grade 6 in early October 2021.

An update regarding extended expiry dates for the testing kits was emailed to families on October 20, 2021. 

Please find more information on this provincial program at https://backtoschool.ednet.ns.ca/kidcovidtest.
