The Ministry of Health and Medical Services wishes to inform the public that COVID-19 Mobile Screening Teams are currently visiting communities around the country.
These communities include High risk areas or containment areas where Fijians living with COVID have visited or reside in.
This mobile screening exercise has dual purposes, one is, it is an opportunity to check for COVID-like symptoms and travel/movement histories that may have put fellow residents in the path of Fijians living with COVID.
The second purpose is to make screening accessible to residents during this period of restricted movement.
This mobile screening is a necessary step and one of the ways to stop this infection from spreading.
The Ministry of Health requests the public residing in these areas to please open your doors to the health team when they arrive for screening. Your information is confidential and safe with the health care teams. We look forward to the public’s cooperation with these mobile screening exercises.
