A quarter-million rapid antigen tests are being sent to child care providers across British Columbia.

The take-home tests will be delivered by the province to government-funded child care facilities through the mail.

The province explains that the rapid tests are an additional tool that can be used to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in child care facilities.

More information about when the tests will arrive will be provided in the coming days.
