To facilitate eligible individuals of the “Guaranteed Mask Supply for Macao Residents Scheme” to purchase masks during Lunar New Year, 8 health centres and 2 health stations subordinated to the Health Bureau (including Hac Sa Wan Health Centre, Fai Chi Kei Health Centre, Ilha Verde Health Centre, Tap Seac Health Centre, Hoi Pong Health Centre, Fong Son Tong Health Centre, Ocean Gardens Health Centre, Nossa Senhora do Carmo - Lago Health Centre, Seac Pai Van (Coloane) Temporary Health Station) will open during 25th to 29th January (09:00-13:00, 14:00-18:00) for members of the public to purchase masks.
Each eligible individual can purchase 10 masks at a time (MOP8 / 10 masks) at the above mentioned health centres/health stations by presenting valid permanent/non-permanent resident identity card or non-resident worker’s identification card (commonly known as the “blue card”); masks can be purchased again 10 days later at contracted pharmacies.
In addition, 7 contracted pharmacies in the Scheme will be opening on Lunar New Year’s Day, 2nd Day and 3rd Day (see attached) to serve the public. To make it easier for members of the public to purchase masks, the inventory level of masks in all contracted pharmacies is now available in the “Special Webpage Against Epidemics” (https://www.ssm.gov.mo/apps1/PreventWuhanInfection/ch.aspx#clg17311); relevant data is updated once every hour. After the launch of the Scheme, the situation of the risen market demand for masks has been alleviated effectively; therefore, members of the public need not panic or rush to pharmacies for purchasing.
