Registration to Become an Approved Rapid Antigen Testing Service

Program Overview

As of October 1, 2021, proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result less than 72 hours old is required for the public to access a range of non-essential businesses, events and venues. Additionally, the Government of Saskatchewan has enacted a policy for Ministry, Crown and Agency employees to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test result less than 7 days old.

Eligibility Criteria

Private labs licensed to provide PCR tests are automatically approved to provide rapid antigen tests for the purpose of negative test results. New service providers will be registered by the Ministry of Health and listed on the Government of Saskatchewan website as an Approved Rapid Antigen Testing Service if the following eligibility criteria are met:

  1. The provider will only use Health Canada-approved tests privately procured from a source outside of the provincial or federal allocation.
  2. The provider must ensure that each staff member administering rapid antigen tests has completed the Saskatchewan Health Authority's online training module for rapid test delivery, if using Abbott Panbio or BD Veritor tests.
  3. The provider must have a corporate website that lists testing fees.
  4. The provider must have a documented process for referring individuals who test positive to the public system (via Healthline 811) for confirmatory testing.
  5. The provider must document all tests processed, and report a count of test results (positive and negative) to the Saskatchewan Health Authority on a weekly basis.
  6. The business must issue a results certificate that states:
    1. corporate name;
    2. the name of the individual tested;
    3. the type of test (i.e. rapid antigen, rapid PCR or lab-based PCR);
    4. the date and time of the sample collection;
    5. a clear indication of the test result, whether positive or negative.
