People with previous history of COVID-19 or recent residence/travel history to foreign country are required to conduct single sample test in nucleic acid testing

The Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre indicates that, it is more common for people with residence or travel history to foreign country to have previous history of COVID-19, and a certain number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 have been tested “re-postive” repeatedly in nucleic acid tests for COVID-19. When the samples of the above-mentioned individuals and others are tested together in mixed samples, a positive result will be identified, and it would be necessary to trace all sampled individuals in the same positive tube for re-testing.

In order to reduce this kind of situation, starting from 1 August, people with residence or travel history to a foreign country within 1 month, or people who have been infected with COVID-19 within 3 months, are required to take single sample test in nucleic acid testing. Single sample test can be conducted at the following locations:

Prior booking required:

  • NAT station at Kiang Wu Hospital Auditorium
  • NAT station at Macau University of Science and Technology Gymnasium
  • NAT station at Qingmao Port

Walk-in service available:

  • NAT station at Conde de São Januário General Hospital

It is reminded that, people with relevant residence/travel history or infection history in the database of the Health Bureau will be prompted in the booking system; and people who do not have record in the system, but have relevant residence/travel history or infection history, must take the initiative to explain their status to the NAT examiner.
