From the Press Release:
New COVID-19 swish and gargle test method for children is now available at all assessment centres in New Brunswick.

“The addition of the new sample collection method will make testing easier for parents and children,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health. “Although the nose swab is the recommended standard test for all New Brunswickers, the swish and gargle is available for children who are unable to receive the nasopharyngeal swab.”

Children from four to 11 years old can simply swish, gargle and spit some sterile salt water or saline solution into a tube instead of getting a nasopharyngeal swab.

“Parents and children are encouraged to watch a video of what to expect and practice how to swish and gargle before the test is done at the assessment site,” said Russell.
