SPPI Webinar: COVID - Rapid Antigen Testing
The Sector Pandemic Planning Initiative (SPPI) launched a webinar series titled, “Resilience, Adaptation, and Reopening” on August 13, 2020. This series is designed to help meet the unique needs of the developmental services sector as we enter the next stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will cover topics related to adapting and realigning our work to shifting needs and reopening safely in a dynamic environment.

The next webinar will be held on Thursday, July 22, 2021 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

As the COVID-19 vaccine distribution continues in the developmental services sector and reopening of the province moves into Step 2 and 3, Rapid Antigen Testing (Point-of-Care Screening) for COVID-19 may become an important topic of conversation within your organizations.

This webinar presentation will touch on methods of antigen screening, resources, partnerships, staff/union response, biohazard waste management, and false positives, as well as the clinical aspects of rapid testing. Representatives from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) will address how to onboard and submit an expression of interest.

Please join us as we discuss important points to consider in the Rapid Antigen Testing process.
