About Combined Test Centres (CTCs)

Combined Test Centres (CTCs), previously known as Regional Screening Centres (RSCs), are set up around Singapore to carry out COVID-19 swab tests for target groups from the general community who are well or have been diagnosed with acute respiratory infection. CTCs provide both the self-paid Antigen Rapid Test (ART) and the COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) swab test.

About Quick Test Centres (QTCs)

Quick Test Centres (QTCs) provide self-paid ART, where the test will be self-administered and supervised by an approved COVID-19 test provider. The test will cost $15 (inclusive of GST), with payment to be made at the QTCs through cashless modes, such as Mastercard, NETS, PayNow and Visa. Individuals will need to bring along their photo identification for verification at the QTC.

Both the CTCs and QTCs are important as they support COVID-19 testing, which helps to keep our homes and communities safe, especially as we re-open and resume our activities.

Stopping of free community ART testing and weekend Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) testing at the Combined Test Centres (CTCs) and Quick Test Centres (QTCs)

We had previously provided free community ART testing and weekend ARI testing at our CTCs and QTCs during the Omicron wave to alleviate the workload at GP clinics and other healthcare facilities. With the declining case numbers and easing of load at the Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPCs), these free tests will cease from 26 April 2022 onwards. Paid ART testing will still be available for members of the public at the CTCs/QTCs, GP clinics or via ART providers.

Self-Paid Antigen Rapid Test for Pre-Event Testing

From 1 October 2021, individuals aged 3 years and above, who need a valid negative COVID-19 ART result for entry into venues that require a negative Pre-Event or Pre-Visit Test may book an appointment at any of the QTCs for a self-paid ART. Minors aged 3 to 12, must be accompanied by a caregiver, aged 21 years old and above. The caregiver may be required to help administer the test if the minor is unable to do so. The results, which are valid for 24 hours, may be used to meet requirements such as those for pre-event test or pre-visit test. 

Individuals are required to book an appointment at any of the following testing venues, prior to the visit.
