COVID-19: Ontario to only provide publicly funded PCR testing for ‘vulnerable’ communities

Ontario’s chief medical health officer Dr. Kieran Moore said Thursday that starting Friday, Dec. 31, the province would begin offering publicly-funded PCR testing for only “vulnerable” individuals with “significant medical issues” who are symptomatic or at risk of developing COVID-19, and for those who work and live in high-risk settings such as hospitals, long-term care and retirement homes.
