Where to get Tested

1. Discontinuation of Asymptomatic COVID-19 Lab PCR Tests

The demand for COVID-19 Testing has risen, both due to the resurgence of COVID-19 across Saskatchewan and as a proof of entry option for workplaces and events as an alternative to vaccination. With the rising demand, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) Test and Assessment sites and Laboratory Medicine teams are experiencing extremely high volumes of COVID-19 test requests at this time. This has resulted in the lab teams needing to triage specimens, prioritizing those belonging to individuals experiencing COVID symptoms (symptomatic).

Effective immediately the SHA will not provide lab PCR testing for individuals who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (asymptomatic).

Lab PCR tests will be given to priority individuals who:

  • Are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been identified as a close contact
  • Have had a positive self-test (rapid antigen test)
  • Are identified as part of an outbreak situation, as ordered by the Medical Health Officer (MHO)
  • Require a transfer or admission to acute and congregate settings
  • Require surveillance testing of immunocompromised patients (including chemotherapy, hemodialysis)

Anyone using the SHA Testing Sites to acquire proof of a negative COVID-19 test will be asked to access private fee for service COVID testing companies within Saskatchewan. Private testing providers offering testing services are listed below. A self-administered at home self-test (rapid antigen test) will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results.

Streamlining testing within the SHA to symptomatic and select asymptomatic testing will ensure a rapid response to outbreak management and help to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The SHA remains focused on providing laboratory services for patients when they need it. 

  • If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or are a priority individual for asymptomatic testing you can receive a referral for COVID-19 testing through HealthLine 811. That referral will help you access an appointment at a testing site in your community.
  • Drive-thru testing sites do not require a referral and are available seven days a week in Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, and Yorkton for those who have COVID-19 symptoms or are a priority individual for asymptomatic testing.
  • In response to an increase in cases in specific settings or areas, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) may offer mobile or pop-up site testing (eg. schools, workplaces, communities) to support outbreak investigations. Watch for local information and on the Saskatchewan Health Authority Facebook and Twitter social media channels.

COVID-19 vaccinations remain the best defense to prevent serious illness and hospitalizations. The Saskatchewan Health Authority and pharmacies throughout the province continue to provide vaccination clinics. To find a clinic near you please visit COVID-19 Vaccine. Testing does not prevent the spread of COVID-19.

4. Register Your Company to Provide Negative Test Result Services

Private labs licensed to provide PCR tests in Saskatchewan are automatically approved to provide rapid antigen tests for the purpose of negative test result requirements, according to the provincial proof of vaccination or negative test policy. 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 eligibility criteria are met.
