Plans are currently in place to install about 100 vending machines across 56 locations, including private hospitals and companies in Singapore, for dispensing antigen rapid test (ART) kits. Individuals who received a COVID-19 health risk alert from the Ministry of Health are able to collect ART kits from the vending machine locations. A health risk warning will be issued to people who have been in contact or close proximity with a COVID-19 case for a prolonged time.
According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), the antigen rapid test kits will be available for collection at selected venues across housing estates islandwide from September 18, 2021. Residents who received the text message from the Ministry of Health will be allowed to collect a pack of three ART self-test kits. This is an effort to ensure proper testing for residents and detect any possible COVID-19 infection as early as possible.
What are Antigen Rapid Test (ART) Self-Test Kits?
The Antigen Rapid Test (ART) self-test kit is a quick screening tool made available for individuals who are concerned to know their status after possible exposure to COVID-19 cases. The test kit will screen you for the SARS-CoV-2, a virus which is responsible for COVID-19.
What’s more, the test is completely safe and very easy to perform. It takes about 20 minutes. The Antigen Rapid Test (ART) self-test kit has relatively high accuracy and allows for faster results. If you are worried that you might have been in close proximity with a COVID-19 case, the ART self-test kit can help determine whether you have been infected or put your mind at ease.
How Does the Antigen Rapid Test Kits Vending Machine Work?
The Antigen Rapid Test Kits vending machines are able to stock up to 480 kits each. If you have received an SMS, you can visit the vending machine location and scan your ID to collect a pack of three ART self-test kits. Swab yourself using the ART self-test kits to perform the necessary testing.
At the workplace, employees can tap their staff IDs or passes against the scanner installed on the ART vending machine to dispense the free ART kits.
