The BC Education Ministry is distributing 200,000 COVID-19 test kits to elementary and high schools in an effort to keep them open.

The ministry says the number of teaching and non-teaching staff will determine how many tests a school gets.

It says the rapid antigen tests are to be used by staff, teachers and administrators with symptoms of COVID-19 to help limit transmission.

The tests are being sent to school districts as well as independent and First Nation schools.
