MOH to conduct mandatory Covid-19 testing for residents
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is investigating possible Covid-19 transmission at Eng Watt Street.
Epidemiological investigations are ongoing to determine linkages and the source of transmission.
In order to disrupt any wider, undetected community transmission, MOH will conduct mandatory Covid-19 testing for all residents of 66 Eng Watt Street.
Testing is optional for those who have tested negative for Covid-19 infection from June 22 onwards.
In the event that a positive Covid-19 case is detected, MOH will isolate the case, identify all close contacts, test and quarantine them to protect the community from further transmission.
Mandatory testing will be conducted at the pavilion at 2D Boon Tiong Road from June 26 to 27, between 9am and 4pm.
Voluntary testing for visitors who have interacted with residents
To detect possible asymptomatic cases in the community, MOH will also conduct voluntary Covid-19 testing for visitors and those who have interacted with residents of 66 Eng Watt Street between from June 8 to 22.
Such individuals are encouraged to come forward for testing.
Testing will be conducted by appointment at designated Regional Screening Centres from June 26 to 27, between 9am and 4pm.
To book an appointment and for information on the alternate test locations, please visit https://go.gov.sg/66-ew-covid-19-testing, or call 1800 333 9999.
All residents are required to bring along their NRIC for identification purposes.

Those who are still awaiting their test results are advised to minimise social interactions as much as possible, and continue to monitor their health and seek immediate medical attention if they feel unwell.
