To ensure that our school
remains safe for all to learn and work in, we have partnered with
LifeLabs, Canada’s largest medical laboratory, to provide free COVID-19
testing for all students and their family members, teachers,
and staff at Cookstown Public School. There are no appointments;
families can attend at any time during the clinic.
COVID-19 testing is voluntary and only for asymptomatic individuals (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.)
If you are interested in participating, testing will be available on the following date:
· Date: Thursday April 8, 2021
· Time: 3:30 – 8:00 p.m.
· Location: Banting Memorial High School – 203 Victoria Street, Alliston, Ontario
Asymptomatic testing is an
important layer of protection that helps to track and prevent the spread
of COVID-19. Increased testing may also help to reduce stress and
anxiety related to the virus by identifying cases
early and avoiding outbreaks.
Our Goal = less discomfort!
The test process is very simple
and safe and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who
will be following a multitude of safety parameters. LifeLabs uses a swab
similar to a Q-tip that is inserted into
the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per
nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be
available within 24-48 hours on LifeLabs WorkClear Thrive application.
If an OHIP number has been provided at the time
of check-in/registration results will also be uploaded to
Thank you for helping us keep
the Cookstown Public School community safe and healthy so that we can
avoid any further disruption from the COVID-19 virus!
