Individuals who have visited Cheng San Market & Cooked Food Centre, Chong Boon Market & Food Centre, Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre and Haig Road Market & Food Centre, as well as residents living in the vicinity of those areas, are eligible to collect their antigen rapid test (ART) self-test kits. 

The collection will take place at the Residents’ Committee Centres near the four markets and food centres.

Those who would like to collect their free self-test kits can find the nearest Residents’ Committee Centre at the ART Go Where website.

Individuals will be prompted to key in their postal code and the nearest collections will be shown. 

Some collection centres include Cheng San Community Centre, Kampong Ubi Community Centre and Joo Chiat Community Club.

Each individual is entitled to receive one pack containing two ART self-test kits.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) strongly encourages those eligible to collect these kits and conduct self-testing, to prevent further COVID-19 transmission in the community. 

Singapore reported a record high of 182 new COVID-19 cases in the community on Tuesday.  Of the new infections, 142 were linked to the Jurong Fishery Port cluster, bringing the total number of confirmed cases within the cluster to 321.

In addition, 14 new cases have been linked to the KTV cluster, which has 207 confirmed cases so far.

As part of the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, Singapore will also return to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) on Thursday (Jul 22).

The Government has advised those unvaccinated to stay at home, minimise social interactions and movements as much as possible under Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
