Self-assessment for individuals who might be at-risk of COVID-19 is now available in Taguig City through its COVID-19 Assessment Survey.
This tool was created to make assessment more accessible for individuals who have limited capacity to leave their homes and consult in the nearest health facility.
Those who are at risk may take an assessment through www.taguiginfo.com or call the Taguig COVID-19 hotline and health centers for the assessment to be delivered.
Individuals who will need to be tested will receive a control number with date and time for testing through e-mail and further instructions to fill out forms.
They can be scheduled to be tested at their nearest Health Center via hatid sundo or scheduled for drive-thru testing in Lakeshore or BGC (for those who have their own vehicles).
With the drive-thru testing process, one may go to drive-thru testing site on a scheduled date and time, present a digital copy of control number to Receiving Booth and proceed to the testing area to get tested.
There, they will receive an anti-COVID kit and while test results will be given via phone call from the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CEDSU).
Hatid Sundo testing
For the Hatid sundo process, they will schedule a pick-up service for transit to the health center. They will present a digital copy of control number to health workers and proceed to the testing area to get tested.
There, they will receive an anti-COVID kit while test results will be given via phone call from the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CEDSU).
Taguig aims to provide PCR Testing to 15,000 Taguig residents.
