This depends on which group you are in:
Group 1) If you have NEVER tested positive for COVID-19, you
do not need to come in for monthly bloodwork.
Therefore, your kit includes prepaid postage for all 10 sample envelopes. You can mail your samples to:
Stop the Spread Ottawa
Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association
The Ottawa Hospital, General Campus
Box 115, 501 Smyth Rd
Group 2) If you have ever tested positive for COVID-19, you do
need to come in for monthly bloodwork.
You will drop-off your samples when you come to have bloodwork done at:
Riverside Campus -The Ottawa Hospital
1967 Riverside Dr.
Main Floor - to the right of the elevators (follow the signs)
*Group 2: Important!
You will bring BOTH your 1st and 2nd month samples to your 2nd bloodwork visit.
This means you will collect your 1st month sample 1-2 days after going for bloodwork for the 1st time.
You will store at home at room temperature until month 2.
You will collect your 2nd month samples the day before going for your 2nd bloodwork visit.
You will therefore bring 2 return envelopes to your 2nd bloodwork visit:
one containing 1st month samples, and one containing 2nd month samples.
