With updates to the province’s Rapid Point of Care Testing Strategy effective March 31, 2022, the Safe Screen B.C. program has merged into the Provincial Health Services Authority’s (PHSA) Rapid COVID-19 Point of Care program.
In light of this transition, businesses can apply directly through PHSA’s Rapid COVID-19 Point of Care Team by emailing them at RapidPOCTeam@phsa.ca to request an intake form.
For businesses already participating in Safe Screen B.C., please contact PHSA’s Rapid COVID-19 Point of Care Team RapidPOCTeam@phsa.ca as of April 1st, 2022 should you have any questions or require support related to rapid testing for workplaces.
Between August 2021 and March 2022, the Safe Screen B.C. program enabled 840 B.C. businesses of all sizes to adopt workplace rapid testing programs for nearly 24,000 employees working across the province. Over 328,000 provincial rapid antigen tests were distributed as part of this program. We thank all of the participating employers, their employees and program partners for their efforts to keep B.C. workplaces safe.
