No, on-site pre-event testing will not be provided. Worshippers will need to visit any clinics offering ART or PCR testing services to undergo their own pre-event testing. Costs of pre-event testing will be borne by the worshipper. Please note that DIY Home Kit swab tests cannot be used in lieu of clinic-conducted pre-event testing.
Worshippers are encouraged to upload their vaccination reports to our Worshippers’ Database for pre-verification. You can obtain your vaccination report via the Singpass App under HealthHub -> COVID-19 Records -> Vaccination Records -> Download PDF. Worshippers can also submit a hardcopy of their COVID-19 Vaccination Report at our service / event venues for inclusion in our Worshippers’ Database. Please note that only vaccination reports showing a fully vaccinated status will be accepted for pre-verification (i.e. no “In Progress” reports). You are considered fully vaccinated after the two-week period following your second vaccination jab.
Pre-verified worshippers will then be granted entry to our service / event venues upon verification of your name or by showing your vaccination status on the TraceTogether App.
Worshippers who have not been pre-verified can either:
i) Show their vaccination status on the TraceTogether App, or
ii) Present a hardcopy of their COVID-19 Vaccination Report, COVID-19 Test Result Notice (ART), COVID-19 Test Result Notice (PCR), or PET Exemption Notice. Please click here for examples of acceptable documents for entry to service / event venues
Worshippers who are not PET-exempted and have yet to be fully vaccinated can either:
i) Visit any clinics offering ART or PCR testing services to undergo their own pre-event testing, and bring along their test results for entry (refer point 2ii). Please note that DIY Home Kit swab tests cannot be used in lieu of clinic-conducted pre-event testing
ii) Attend services online via YouTube live stream. All our in-person services are also available via live stream at faithmc.sg/livestream
The table below summarises the cases where a worshipper is exempted from PET:
All children aged 12 years and below are exempted from PET.
i) Worshippers who have recovered from COVID-19 can obtain a PET Exemption Notice from any clinics offering ART or PCR testing services. For worshippers who had been infected with COVID-19 in Singapore, the exemption period will be 270 days from the date of the earliest positive PCR result
ii) For worshippers who have been infected with COVID-19 overseas, you are required to present proof of your overseas positive PCR test result and accompanying local positive serology test result. If the serology test has not been performed, the provider can conduct the serology tests and if the worshipper has tested serology positive, the exemption period will be 270 days from the date of the earliest positive PCR result obtained overseas
Failure to comply may result in breach of Control Order Regulations where a person who, without reasonable excuse, contravenes a control order, commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction
i) to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or to both; or
ii) in the case of a second or subsequent offence, to a fine not exceeding $20,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to both
The church can work with you to help acquire or retrieve the documents. If worshippers are not able to provide these documents, the church can deny them entry into the service / event venue.
The church may inform them that it is an offence to do so and he / she may be subjected to the penalties as listed in Q7.
