A pre-school in Bedok Reservoir has registered its staff for a slot at Khatib MRT to be picked up for swab test. This is strange as there is a pick-up point at Tampines West which is much nearer to where most of the staff are staying. It takes 1.5 hours to travel from Bedok to Khatib by MRT. During this covid-19 situation, doesn’t it make sense to shorten travel distance to minimise risk of exposure to viruses?
Each pre-school staff is ferried to one of four swabbing centres by an authorised shuttle bus, which they can take from Woodlands, Tampines West, Dover or Khatib.MRT station, as per their allocated slot.
Since yesterday, pre-school staff have started undergoing Covid-19 swab tests, and a long queue was seen at Khatib MRT station yesterday waiting for the shuttle bus to be ferried to the swabbing centre.
