To book your test, track down your nearest location or to simply find out more, download the SEHA app (available on Apple and Google stores), you can also call them directly on (800) 50, or visit the seha.ae website. For emergencies, SEHA also operates a network of 24 hour

This move comes as a new wave of Covid-19 and its variants are spreading in locations across the world. Frequent testing is one of the most important and effective tools in keeping the population safe.

Drive through testing is one of the approved methods for close contact and quarantine testing. Those testing positive (red Alhson status), after following mandated quarantine (10 days), you will need two negative PCR tests 24 hours apart taken through SEHA drive through services, before you can end quarantine.
