What is the CDL Rapid Screening Consortium?
The CDL Rapid Screening Consortium is a private-led, not-for-profit initiative formed in August 2020 with the goal of establishing a robust rapid screening system and operational implementation strategy to be delivered as a public good to Canada and then the world.
Nationwide implementation of rapid screening protocols, developed by the Consortium in partnership with members and the provincial and territorial governments, will support Canada’s management of COVID-19 in the following key ways:
·       Develop operational knowledge and an implementation strategy – Based on Pilot Phase learnings from over 30 organizations with more than 500,000 employees across sectors and geographies.
·       Reduce load on healthcare systems – The rapid screening system allows Canadian healthcare resources to focus their screening efforts on infected people.
How do you capture results and other data?
CDL RSC has developed a national platform to collect and share data on the effectiveness of rapid antigen screening in the workplace.
You may record and submit results via our simplified template and upload portal.
Additionally, CDL RSC provides the option to implement pre-configured technology apps, which:
·       Streamline screening operations
·       Provide clarity to employees
What is included in CDL RSC organization support?
CDL RSC has developed a detailed on boarding process for any organization in Canada to deploy rapid screening in their workplace. The solution is sector-agnostic and easily translates to organizations of all sizes, from small to large.
Through the CDL RSC Workplace Rapid Screening Program, organizations receive:
·       Onboarding Support
