They may have gotten hold of rapid tests but the rapid tests are impossible to get here in Ottawa right now. They are giving them out in certain locations which means lengthy lines (kind of defeats the purpose imo). They are definitely not available in Shoppers here right now.While it's true that free rapid tests are hard to come by, there are rapid tests available for purchase whether online or at Shoppers. Simply "highly recommending" that skaters attending nationals get PCR or rapid tests (which is what Skate Canada has done) doesn't seem pro-active enough. And while we have fared better up here than in the US, several of our own skaters are testing positive.
