Kingston, Ontario. COVID-19 tests detect few and far between – Kingston | The Canadian News

It is becoming increasingly difficult for residents of Kingston, Ontario, to obtain a rapid test for COVID-19. As of Wednesday morning, there were no available spots on the Beechgrove test site as of Monday.

Lawsuit has skyrocketed following a directive from KFL & A Public Health last week that even those with mild cold symptoms should be tested.

The Kingston Health Sciences Center says they had been doing an average of 400 tests a day, but last week it soared to more than 700. The Beechgrove site is also receiving more than 700 tests a day.

The hospital even announced Wednesday afternoon that a pop-up testing clinic will run the nights of November 25-29 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
