Community Surveillance

The Ministry of Health is encouraging members of the public who have received a Health Risk Alert (HRA) SMS, to come forward for a free swab test.

Persons who have received the HRA SMS are advised to monitor their health closely, and minimise social interactions as far as possible, for 14 days from the date you receive the SMS. Individuals who develop any COVID-19 symptoms should see their doctor immediately.  While close contacts of the confirmed cases who are at higher risk of infection have already been identified through contact-tracing, MOH is offering a fully-funded COVID-19 PCR test to individuals who had received a HRA SMS to pre-emptively mitigate any potential risk of wider, undetected community transmission.

What Should I do?

Individuals may book an appointment at any of the following testing venues for a free swab test.
