Rapid COVID-19 testing being deployed across Eastern Ontario

The ID NOW tests are currently being used in two hospitals, including The Ottawa Hospital, while 20 other facilities are readying to launch testing. The province expects another 1.5 million more Panbio tests by the year's end.

The premier has repeatedly called the rapid tests "game changers" in the fight against COVID-19.

Panbio tests will also be used in a broader eight-week pilot for participating employers in the private, public and non-profit sectors, prioritizing access for health care settings, essential frontline settings, and congregate settings.

The province said there were 12,917 active cases and 14 new deaths as Ontario reported a total of 106,510 cases, 90,074 of which have been resolved.

While Toronto and Peel face the strictest measures, other areas of the province are also seeing rules tighten.

"I can't get angry at any business person, they're hurting right now and they're struggling, they're doing everything they can to stay afloat", he said.

It noted many patrons were not wearing masks or practising physical distancing.

Personal services have also been forced to close, but schools and child-care centres remain open.
