Nine rapid testing sites will operate on Saturday in all districts, offering the public free coronavirus tests, irrespective of their vaccination history, the health ministry announced on Friday.
In easing restrictions to tackle pandemic earlier this month, the Council of Ministers had recommended that all citizens, regardless of vaccination history, undergo a self-test or rapid test once a week.
It decided all population groups can be served through the mobile rapid antigen testing units, free of charge, regardless of vaccination history.
The ministry’s rapid antigen testing units operate only on Saturdays and Sundays, conducting sample testing for epidemiological surveillance purposes of the population, it added.
Anyone wishing to be tested must carry proof of identity.
