Where to get a rapid COVID-19 test this week (May 3-7) 

Get out of lockdown and get tested.

Pre-booked PCR tests are still on pause for most Nova Scotians. This week, the only tests available (unless you're a close contact or possible exposure) are rapid or pop-up tests. To get a rapid test you must be over the age of 16 and have no symptoms, recent travel or possible exposure to COVID-19.

Here's where the upcoming rapid-testing sites will be. When you go, dress for the weather, anticipate a long line and don't forget your mask!
