ScreenPro Provides COVID-19 Testing Updates
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 11, 2022) - ScreenPro Security Inc. (CSE: SCRN) (OTCQB: SCRSF) ("ScreenPro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company is currently providing Covid-19 testing to eleven (11) film and production companies in Canada.
The Company's COVID-19 testing business is expected to maintain its demand due to the recent news of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists ("SAG-AFTRA") that testing will remain in place as part of the COVID-19 safety & return to work agreement into 2023.

Additionally, Canada's COVID-19 Immunity Task Force suggests that infections rise in the colder seasons. Experts warn that Canadians are in the "Omicron era" which can fuel a higher demand in testing with stronger variants such as BQ.1/BQ1.11 and BA .2.75.2 expected to spread and cause a spike in cases.
