COVID-19 testing outside of accredited medical laboratories with licensed staff - The New Brunswick Department of Health strongly discourages the practice of employers offering COVID-19 testing to employees through unaccredited, non-medical laboratory facilities. 

Reporting Requirements

Once a pilot participant has screened positive, the Results Manager is to arrange for a PCR test for the participant using the New Brunswick Covid-19 Testing referral form. The form requests a lot of information about the participant and if the Results Manager is unsure of any of the required information in the referral form they should review with the participant over the phone when they call them to notify them of the positive screen result. The following information is required to refer a participant. Answer the questions on the behalf of the participant.
