For the last 10 weeks, the Whitby Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Whitby distributed COVID-19 antigen testing kits free to businesses. Together, we distributed 9,875 tests to the business community! Now that September is upon us, the Town of Whitby will be using their building for municipal programming, and as such, on August 31st we delivered 6,125 tests to the Clarington Board of Trade.
Any business can continue to order them from Clarington https://www.cbot.ca/rapidscreening/, and those that obtained their tests from us are still required to report on their results weekly through our reporting portal: https://www.whitbychamber.org/covid-19-workplace-self-screening-program/.
Thank you to the Town of Whitby for their support of this program, our team for developing the website for our businesses to order and report (and helping deliver the tests to Clarington!) and lastly the Clarington Board of Trade for leveraging our remaining tests for the betterment of our business community.
