The kits are an added layer of ring fencing to help to identify cases and prevent further transmission.
Residents living near Geylang Bahru Market and Food Centre as well as 146 Teck Whye Avenue Market will be able to collect their free Antigen Rapid Test (ART) self-test kits.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is working with the People’s Association to distribute the kits to individuals who had visited selected markets and food centres in the last 14 days, such as residents living in the vicinity of these centres.
MOH is investigating cases of COVID-19 infection involving markets and food centres which are likely seeded by fishmongers who visited Jurong Fishery Port to collect their stock and sell at the markets and food centres.
The self-test kit is an added layer of ringfencing to help to identify cases and prevent further transmission.
The collection will run from Monday (Jul 26) to Tuesday (Jul 27) at Residents’ Committee Centres in the vicinity of the following locations:
MOH said it is strongly encouraging eligible individuals to collect and perform self-testing using these ART kits. They can refer to https://www.gowhere.gov.sg/art and key in their postal code to check the nearest Residents’ Committee Centre for self-collection.
On Sunday, MOH reported 117 new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases, of which 46 are linked to the Jurong Fishery Port cluster and five to the KTV cluster. There were also 38 unlinked cases.
