In the wake of 12 positive NATs confirmed overnight, the Macao government has announced city-wide Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) for the whole population. Beginning at 12 pm today and running until 12 pm on 21 June, individuals will be able to get NATs across the city’s 58 stations where they can access live wait times.

NAT bookings must be made online prior to the appointments and test results will not be shown on the Macao Health Code nor can they be used for cross-border travel.

Each person is also receiving three rapid antigen test kits upon registration at the NAT stations. Arrangements on the use of the test kits will be announced in due course. “Residents will be required to perform the test on their own as required, and report the test results to a designated online platform,” the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre said, adding that citizens cannot open the test kits before specific arrangements on their use are announced by the Centre.
