These tests are considered acceptable molecular tests:

-PCR - Polymerase chain reaction
-RT-PCR – reverse transcription real time PCR
-Quantitative PCR (qPCR)
-Nucleic acid test (NAT) or Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs)
-Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP)
-Isothermal amplification
-Droplet digital PCR or digital droplet PCR (ddPCR)
-Transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)
-RNA (Ribonucleic acid)
-Ct (cycle threshold)
-Next generational sequencing (NGS) or whole genome sequencing (WGS)
-Oxford Nanopore sequencing (LamPORE)
-Detection of the N gene
-Detection of Orf1a/b
-Detection of the S gene
-Detection of the E gene
-Detection of the RdRp gene

These tests use methods such as a nasopharyngeal (NP) swab, nose swab, or saliva sample. At this time, proof of having a vaccine will not replace a negative test result.

Antigen tests are not acceptable.

(All of which seems to be designed to encourage Canadians like us to stay home)
