There are currently 2 modes of RRT facilities.
Regional Screening Centres (RSC)/ In-dorm RRT Facilities
HPB currently operates 17 RSCs island wide to make testing more accessible for your employees. Depending on the residential type (dormitory or non-dormitory), employees can be scheduled for their RRT at the respective RSCs. Operating hours of the RSCs are from 9am to 4pm daily including Sundays and public holidays.
For employees residing in one of the 34 Purpose-Built Dormitories (PBDs) with HPB RRT facilities, they also have the option of RRT swab at their place of residence. Depending on the population size of the PBDs, these in-dormitory RRT facilities operate either daily or on alternate days. As of end November 2020, 29 of these PBDs have extended their operating hours from 5pm to 8pm.
Employers will be able to view the available locations in the SRS when booking RRT appointments for their workers.
Self-Swab Model (SSM)
The Self-Swab Model (SSM) is a swab test operating model that allows swab testing to be conducted at the premises of the company. The swab test will be carried out by an appointed Healthcare Provider together with a partnering laboratory.
To encourage companies to adopt the SSM, the Self-Swab Grant Scheme is an initiative by HPB to promote greater flexibility, sustainability, and ownership of swab testing in the companies whose workers need to undergo Rostered Routine Testing (RRT). For more information, please click here.
