Free COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) self-test kits will be distributed to individuals who have visited Mayflower Market & Food Centre and Redhill Market, the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced on Thursday (Jul 29).
The collection for the self-test kits will run from Jul 30 and Jul 31 at the Residents’ Committee Centres in the vicinity of these areas.
