On Monday, May 17, Shoppers Drug Mart announced it will be selling rapid COVID-19 tests to asymptomatic people in Alberta and Ontario starting today.
"Rapid antigen tests are available in all Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaw pharmacies in the two provinces, providing results typically within 15-20 minutes," the company said in a press release.
You must not have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who's tested positive in order to get one. The tests cost $40 each, and they will be processed right away with results being sent to the customer afterwards.
People are being advised to book an appointment at their nearby Shoppers or Loblaw pharmacy locations.
If you're not showing COVID-19 symptoms but you're looking for some peace of mind, you can book in to get one of these quick tests at all Alberta locations now.
