Who must be tested for COVID-19?
As per the Minister’s Directive: COVID-19: Long-Term Care Home Surveillance Testing and Access to Homes (Minister’s Directive) effective January 8, 2021, all staff, student placement and volunteers working in long-term care homes must be tested regularly in accordance with the Minister’s Directive, unless the exception for individuals who have previously had laboratory confirmed COVID-19 applies. The testing requirements in the Minister’s Directive include all individuals working in long-term care homes who are: • Staff as defined in the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007 • Volunteers as defined in the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007 • Student placement, meaning any person working in the long-term care home as part of a clinical placement requirement of an educational program of a college or university, and who does not meet the definition of “staff” or “volunteer” under the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007. The Minister’s Directive also includes additional testing and documentation requirements for general visitors, caregivers and support workers.
When should you perform Dewei COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test?
The COVID-19 Ag Rapid test should NOT be used for diagnosis of COVID-19 infection. Any individual who is symptomatic or a contact of a confirmed case should be directed to their healthcare provider, an assessment centre, or participating licensed community lab to seek PCR testing.
If an individual previously tested positive for COVID-19, should they be tested again?
An individual who has previously had laboratory-PCR confirmed COVID-19 and was cleared by the local public health unit (PHU), should generally not be re-tested for surveillance purposes due to persistent shedding. Previously cleared individuals should continue to follow
public health guidance for COVID-19 prevention, including self-isolating after high risk exposures to cases.
Re-testing after clearance should generally only be done with new the onset of new COVID-19 symptoms and can be considered if there is exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19 or in an outbreak and/or at the direction of the local PHU. Individuals who have previously been
infected with and recovered from COVID-19 should not undergo antigen testing.
If an individual has been vaccinated or immunized for COVID-19, do they still need to be tested prior to visiting a long-term care home?
Yes, the testing requirements of the Minister’s Directive continue to apply to individuals who have been vaccinated, in addition to continuing to follow public health measures including masking, physical distancing, hand hygiene, and symptom screening. This includes active screening on entry to the long-term care home for symptoms and exposures for COVID-19, including temperature checks, attesting to not be experiencing any of the typical and atypical symptoms of COVID-19 (in accordance with Directive #3 issued by the Chief Medical Officer of Health).
Do individuals who test positive on the rapid antigen test need to be confirmed with lab-based PCR testing?
A positive test result on the rapid antigen test should be considered a preliminary positive and requires a confirmatory laboratory-based PCR test. The following actions should be taken:
1. Counsel individual that the result is preliminary positive and PCR confirmation is required.
2. Issue guidance to return home and self-isolate until receipt of confirmatory laboratory PCR test result.
3. Ensure confirmatory laboratory-based PCR testing is performed within 24 hours.
4. Report the preliminary positive result to the local Public Health unit as soon as possible.
