ART kits are on the way; test before you meet seniors or someone vulnerable: Ong Ye Kung

Health Minister Ong Ye Kung took to Facebook on Jul 18 to remind Singaporeans of two things.

It was announced last month that the Ministry of Health will be conducting a third national distribution of 10 ART kits each to the letterboxes of more than 1.5 million households from Jul 18 onwards via SingPost.

Second, be socially responsible and test yourself if you are meeting seniors or someone vulnerable.

Said Minister Ong: “If you are meeting seniors or someone vulnerable, test yourself before going out. If you have ARI symptoms such as runny nose, sore throat or fever, test yourself daily, as a positive result may only develop some days after onset of symptoms.”

“Being socially responsible is key for us to weather through this current wave.”
