  1. TESTING SERVICES

The Website facilitates the booking of Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing including RT-PCR, Antigen and Antibody Testing services. The Website offers general information and interactive booking for these services.

We provide COVID-19 testing for screening purposes only.  We do not provide primary care or health care services, such as diagnosis or treatment of any medical conditions or illnesses. You are not creating a physician-patient relationship with Swift Clinics by using our Website or undergoing COVID-19 testing.

Swift Clinics is not providing you with professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. You are responsible for consulting with a medical provider to obtain medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, and/or if you have any questions or concerns.  The contents of the Website do not constitute medical advice and do not replace or substitute for the advice of a qualified healthcare provider.

If you choose to use our Services, you agree to the following.

  • We do not provide COVID-19 testing to individuals who are eligible for COVID-19 testing in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Health’s provincial COVID-19 testing guidelines. This includes individuals who are symptomatic, who have been exposed to a confirmed or likely case of the virus as notified by local public health or the COVID Alert app, or live or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak as identified by a local public health unit. Individuals who require tests for the above purposes should follow the guidance of their health care provider and/or Ontario public health officials as appropriate and follow Ontario public health guidance and/or visit an Ontario COVID-19 Assessment Center, as applicable. If a payment has been made prior to providing Services in the foregoing circumstances, a full refund will be provided.
  • You authorize Swift Clinics to collect, use, store and disclose your personal information, including but not limited to your name, date of birth, gender, address, nationality, passport number and date and time that testing services were provided, for the purpose of providing COVID-19 testing services, and for inclusion on your test report.
  • You authorize Swift Clinics to disclose your test results and your personal information, including health card information, to Ontario Public Health, the local public health unit or another governmental authority as required by law.
  • You assume full responsibility for taking appropriate actions with respect to your test results. If you obtain a positive test result, you will comply with all directions from local public health authorities, including self-isolating at home. You understand that a positive test result from COVID-19 testing for screening purposes is not a diagnosis, and that you will need to obtain confirmatory diagnostic testing at a COVID-19 assessment centre.
  • Swift Clinics will communicate your test results to you via the email address you provided to Swift Clinics, unless you specifically direct in writing that Swift Clinics communicate your test results in another manner before specimen collection occurs.
  • Swift Clinics will make every effort to provide test results within a certain timeframe, but that delays in providing test results may occur. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you hereby release, discharge and hold harmless, Swift Clinics, including, without limitation, any its respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents from any and all claims, liability, and damages, of whatever kind or nature, arising out of or in connection with any act or omission relating to my COVID-19 test or the disclosure of my COVID-19 test results.
  • If you are obtaining a COVID-19 test for travel purposes, it is your responsibility to confirm travel requirements for my destination with the relevant local authorities. This includes but is not limited to the type of COVID-19 test, type of sample collected (e.g. nasal, nasopharyngeal, saliva or gargle), timing of testing, test or screen results reports, and/or licensing, approvals, accreditation or certification required. Swift Clinics is not responsible for providing you advice on travel or testing requirements, and you will not hold Swift Clinics liable for any compensation or damages resulting directly or indirectly from travel delay, interruption, or cancellation for any reason.
  • Should your test indicate a positive result, it is your responsibility to consult with public health and/or your primary care provider for diagnosis, treatment, and/or other follow ups.
  • In the course of screening for COVID-19, an incidental finding may be received for another viral infection. In case of such a positive finding, this would not constitute an official diagnosis and Swift Clinics accepts no responsibility for diagnosis or treatment of such an illness. In case of a positive screening, you will be requested to forward the information of your primary healthcare provider for this information and the appropriate findings to be communicated to your primary healthcare provider for diagnosis, treatment and/or other action.

You understand and agree that you have been advised of the nature of the COVID-19 screening testing, expected benefits, risks, side effects, alternative courses of action and you have had the opportunity to ask questions about the COVID-19 screening testing to your satisfaction.

You understand and agree that screen and/or testing methods used are not fully accurate, in respect of sensitivity, specificity, equipment and operator errors. You agree not to hold Swift Clinics or any of our agents or partners liable for any invalid or inaccurate results reported.
