The collection will run from Jul 28 to Jul 29 at Residents’ Committee Centres in the vicinity of the both locations. 

MOH said it 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, including those who live near these venues. 

MOH strongly encourages those eligible for the kits to collect them and conduct self-testing. They can refer to and key in their postal code to check the nearest Residents’ Committee Centre for self-collection.

There are currently 39 active clusters, ranging between three and 902 infections.

MOH reported 136 new local COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, of which 36 are linked to the Jurong Fishery Port and two to the KTV cluster. There were also 55 infections that were unlinked.
