CCES Publishes COVID-19 Testing Procedure FAQ for Athletes

(Ottawa, Ontario – July 23, 2020) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) recently resumed urine sample collection under the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) as athletes and sports have returned to training.

To help manage athletes’ questions about the return to testing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the CCES has created a FAQ about the supplemental doping control procedures and safety enhancements in place to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

Athletes submitted many of the questions in the FAQ, and it will be updated when relevant questions are submitted. Read the COVID-19 FAQ.

If you have a question that is not addressed in the FAQ, please email us.
