Burlington, Ontario – March 23, 2020 – Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (CSE: DOSE) (“RDT” or the “Company”) announces that operations at its Burlington, Ontario facility have been curtailed due to a number of reasons including the recent dramatic drop in North American stock markets, the COVID-19 corona virus and cash flow difficulties. As a result, almost all of the Company’s employees have been issued temporary lay-off notices. The Company’s recently proposed financing has been delayed indefinitely due to the recent stock market turmoil.

“We have a great team at RDT and I am personally extremely pleased with the understanding of our situation exhibited by so many of our staff,” said Mark Upsdell, RDT’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have great people, innovative products and numerous opportunities for growth in our business. We believe that this situation is temporary and, as soon as some of our financing prospects, accounts receivable or other sources of funds materialize, we expect to be back in operations in all respects as soon as the COVID-19 quarantining requirements are lifted.”
