One-off COVID-19 Swab Test for Coffeeshop Personnel

As announced by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce on 29 August 2020, the COVID-19 testing regime will be expanded to identified community groups, such as stallholders at hawker centres, markets and coffeeshops, as well as food delivery personnel.

Following the successful pilot run at Marine Parade, the Health Promotion Board (HPB), together with the National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG), are extending the one-off test to more stallholders, stall assistants and cleaners working at 110 hawker centres and markets and more than 1,120 coffeeshops, as well as food delivery personnel operating in the locality of these eating places, due to their higher frequency of interactions with members of public. This will provide a better picture of population prevalence and facilitate the early containment of cryptic cases in the community, especially as we continue to reopen our economy and allow more activities to resume.

This next one-off COVID-19 swab test on 14, 20 & 21 January 2021 is offered at no charge to personnel working at selected coffeeshops in Tampines & Pasir Ris, and selected F&B establishments in Pasir Ris Park. We strongly encourage all eligible personnel to come forward for the testing to protect yourselves and those around you.

Please refer to this link for the list of eligible food establishment addresses and the respective allocated screening centre locations/dates.

As pre-registration is required, you may do so here.
