For asymptomatic patients only

The Ministry of Health and Wellness has opened additional testing sites for COVID-19 across the country. On Monday, October 25th, San Pedro Town opened another testing area at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre sporting complex (Saca Chispas field), opening Monday to Friday from 8AM to 2PM. The services at this location will be for asymptomatic patients only. Persons with COVID-19- like symptoms will need to visit the Flu Clinic at Mar de Tumbo south of downtown to get tested.

Anyone who has no symptoms but has been in close contact with a person diagnosed with the virus and suspects they may be infected is urged to get tested. The method is rapid testing, and patients can wait for the results while at the Saca Chispas field. If this comes back positive, the person is asked to head over to the flu clinic in Mar de Tumbo, where they will be given quarantine information and medication. According to Dr. Joshua A. Canul, at this new testing site, besides treating asymptomatic persons, tests are being done for those who need a negative test to travel within the country and those needing one to work. The site does not provide testing for persons needing it to travel abroad. Those requiring a negative COVID-19 test to travel out of the country must get one from the private institutions/clinics providing such service.

[b]NEW Covid-19 testing site in San Pedro Town for people who have NO SYMPTOMS but believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19[/b

The site is not designated for people wanting to test for travel. The Asymptomatic Testing Booth started on Monday, October 25th, 2021 and will be stationed on the island for two months. A collaborative effort between local and national government to combat Covid-19 and reduce the number of cases. Testing hours are from 8am to 2pm. Anyone WITH symptoms is encouraged to continue using the Flu Clinic in the Mar de Tumbo Area. Working together for a safer San Pedro!
