Educational resources on Antigen Rapid Test

Antigen Rapid Test (ART) is a fast and easy swab test which can be self-administered, for individuals to test if they might be infected with the COVID-19 virus.

Note: Workers must not perform the ART self-testing if they

  • Had nosebleed in the past 24 hours.
  • Had nasal surgery in the last 4 weeks.
  • Had facial surgery in the last 8 weeks.

Migrant workers with acute respiratory illness (ARI) e.g. fever, cough, running nose or sore throat are to seek medical treatment.

For workers with a Primary Care Plan (PCP), they should seek medical treatment at the Medical Centre or Designated Clinics or consult a telemedicine provider using FWMOMCare with the provider that your worker has a Primary Care Plan (PCP) with.

For workers who do not have a PCP yet, relevant charges will apply.

Vaccinated migrant workers can visit Recreation Centres (RCs) without a pre-visit ART test.

Unvaccinated migrant workers can do so after testing ART negative on the day of RC visit.
