While close contacts of these cases have already been alerted, MOH highly encourages patrons of both malls especially within the specified period to go for a free swab test.

They will progressively send SMSes to individuals who’ve checked in on those dates.

From 19 May to 1 Jun, these individuals can either book an appointment at Fullerton Health Testing Centre via the number 6333 3636 or go straight for a swab test at either of these locations:

  • Raffles Hospital – 585 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188770
  • Raffles Medical @ Shaw Centre Orchard – 1 Scotts Road, #05-01 to #05-11, Singapore 228208

Alternatively, they can also book their appointments at the following Regional Screening Centres:

  • Jurong Club House – 11 Jurong Town Hall Road
  • Da Qiao Primary School – 8 Ang Mo Kio Street 54
  • Shuqun Secondary School – 450 Jurong East Street 21
  • Coral Primary School – 20 Pasir Ris Street 51
  • Bishan Park Secondary School – 2 Sin Ming Walk

However, if you’re feeling unwell, there is also the “Swab and Send Home” option at any Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC). Do note that this will only be available to individuals who have received an SMS from MOH.

Public should constantly monitor their own health

Hopefully, individuals who have been notified will take the initiative to get their free swab tests done.

With due diligence and adhering to protocols and measures set by the Government, we’re hopeful that the situation will improve.

Till then, let’s continue giving our full cooperation to help fight the battle against Covid-19.
