They must take a photo of themselves being tested, along with the subsequent negative results and the time and date of the test. The photo, packing and product insert of the rapid antigen test kit and the vaccination record need to be shown together to ward staff for checking before entering the ward.


Apart from showing negative test results, visitors must also wear surgical masks, have their temperatures checked and fill in health declaration forms which can be done in advance through the Hospital Visit QR code.
