Currently, these travellers are to take an on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, followed by supervised ART tests on Days 3 and 7.“Essentially, besides the pre-departure and on-arrival tests, all travellers on VTL will be put on a daily testing regime over 7 days using ART,” MOH said.

The tests are all self-administered, and travellers will be required to submit the results of their self-administered ART online via a link which will be sent to them via their declared contact details after arrival in Singapore.However, on Days 3 and 7, the tests will have to be done under supervision at a Combined Test Centre or Quick Test Centre. Day 3 is the median incubation period, and Day 7 is the day of exit from this testing protocol. headtopics.com
