Drive-through swab test centre to close this Monday

Drive-through swab test at Sarawak State Library Sibu Branch will be closed from this Monday.

SIBU: The Covid-19 swab test drive-through screening centre at the Sarawak State Library Sibu Branch here will be closed effective this coming Monday.

The Sibu Division Disaster Management Committee (DDMC) said the closure is to allow the Health Ministry (MoH) staff to conduct active case detection (ACD) in several zones in the Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) administrative area.

“Following the increasing number of positive Covid-19 cases in the SMC administration area, SDDMC will close the drive-through from this Monday.

“This is to enable ACD to be carried out on a large scale in the affected zone areas,” it said in a statement today.

It added that the public could still conduct screening at clinics near them such as at Lanang Health Clinic and Sibu Jaya Health Clinic or at other health centres.

The zones in the SMC administration that are of high risk for the Covid-19 pandemic are Jalan Tiong Hua, Sentosa, Permai and Ulu Sungai Merah.
