Newsroom

As an essential service, we are proud to do our part in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ve added critical testing capacity for COVID-19 and are redeploying non-essential testing capacity to support this urgent public health need. Working with government and public health officials, we are contributing more than 1,000 samples a day of testing capacity in Ontario and 600 a day in British Columbia. And we are working to expand to 2,000 samples a day as quickly as possible.
