I have staff who are exposed to close contact of positive cases.
Since there’s delay in KKM testing, should we test the close contact to ascertain if they’re positive or otherwise, or instead test our staff whom are exposed to the close contact?
And which test to use, PCR or RTK?
Thank you for your question.
If they are close contact of a positive case it is wise to get a screening test done. You may click on this link to directly request a COVID-19 screening test.
Meanwhile waiting for further instructions from the District Health Office, try to maintain physical and social distance between close friends and family members.
I would also encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate their health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.
But if you want to seek a second opinion, you may try to contact the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC). Other than that, do practice good hand hygiene and normalize wearing face mask in public.
