In collaboration with Ahalia Medical Group, Filipino Institute students, specifically those studying under its K-12 program, are entitled to a free Covid-19 PCR test in Ahalia Hospital in the capital.
Ahalia Hospital in Abu Dhabi will be providing a free Covid-19 PCR test to all students below 16 years old.
Students will be accommodated upon registration in the hospital provided that they show proof of enrollment, including a student ID along with the government-issued Emirates ID.
The hospital is exactly located at Hamdan Street, Abu Dhabi, Block A, 4th Floor, Pediatric Clinic. Students need not secure an appointment in advance to take the test.
This initiative is part of the Department of Health and Abu Dhabi Health Services Company’s (SEHA) scheme to provide free Covid-19 PCR nasal swab tests for kids and teenagers at selected facilities and screening centres across the country.
The free Covid-19 test is available until Thursday, September 30.
All students–either from private or charter schools–are mandated to produce a 14-day negative nasal PCR or saliva test result before they return to school.
