Enquiry of COVID-19 Test

Answered by: Dr Ramzdhan

Hi,

Last Friday night(08/01/2021), we officially moved into a new unit and got informed that one of the tenants who share the same unit with us was tested positive for COVID-19 by Saturday(09/01/2021). Hence, the landlord arranged her to move out to another unit for quarantine.

Even though we did not have any close contact with the girl but the landlord requested us to go for a test since there’re also other tenants living in the same unit. It would be better for us to get a proof.

For your information, me and my girlfriend were moving stuff in and out for two days before moving in. And yet, my girlfriend has met her on the entrance of unit whild moving stuff.

We also did not received any information or update from KKM since we are not considered as close contacted person with the girl. However, we tried to register the test online but it advised us to go for a self-quarantine instead of going for a test.

We want to ask is there any other way for us to get a test instead of registering online. I am looking forward for your advice.

Thank you.
