Antigen tests now being done in 3 fire stations

Posted on Dec 15 2021

Antigen tests are rolled out to bring rapid identification of SARS-CoV-2 infection and to augment and not replace current efforts.

Below are the COVID-19 antigen drive-thru testing dates on Saipan:

– Kagman Fire Station: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, 8am – 4pm

– Garapan Fire Station: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, 8am – 4pm

– Susupe Fire Station: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, 8am – 4pm

A negative test result means you may not be currently infected. It does not rule out an infection.

False negatives are fairly common with antigen tests. If you are a close contact of someone positive for SARS-COV-2, it is important that a negative antigen test be confirmed with a PCR test, or that you go to a PCR test collection site instead—the community-based testing offered at Pacific Islands Club Saipan.

If you are unsure of exposure but attending a gathering, live COVID-19 safe: follow the 3 W’s (wear a mask, wash your hands, watch your distance); limit your contact with people outside your household; avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces; cover coughs and sneezes; clean and disinfect high touch surfaces daily; and monitor for symptoms daily.
