The Ford government has changed regulations to allow pharmacists to administer tests for COVID-19.

Ford said last week the province would soon roll out pharmacy testing.

This means a pharmacist does not have to obtain a specimen collection centre licence in order to collect specimens for a COVID-19 test.

Pharmacy testing is for those who are asymptomatic.

More to come.
