Where to get a rapid test on Sunday, 14 March

The Health Ministry announced the locations where the general population and workers can take a rapid antigen test on Sunday, 14 March.

Businesses need to ensure that employees get tested on a weekly basis as follows:

  • Businesses/services employing up to 3 people, all employees should be tested.
  • Businesses/services employing between 4 to 10 people, at least 4 employees should be tested.
  • Businesses/services employing more than 11 people, at least 4 people or 20% of employees should be tested, whichever is higher in number.

Additionally, the self-employed and the domestic employees and/or people caring for elderly or disabled persons or people providing assistance to individuals who are unable to take care of themselves are also obligated to participate in the program.

In addition, all teachers and school staff are also required to take a rapid antigen test once a week. Moreover, as of 8 March, pupils aged 12 and over are also required to present a negative rapid test on a weekly basis. The Ministry noted that there will be mobile testing units in public and private high schools but staff and pupils can take the test at other testing units if they so wish.
