The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced that residents can now book an appointment to get a COVID-19 PCR test in malls across Dubai.
The PCR testing stations in Mall of the Emirates, City Center Mirdif and City Center Deira are receiving customers seven days a week from 11am to 6pm by appointment. Residents can book an appointment by calling the DHA toll-free number 800DHA (800342).
Those who have a fever or any respiratory symptoms should not get tested at the mall as this service is specifically for those who require a PCR test result for travel and other non-medical purposes.
Each COVID-19 PCR testing station has the capacity to conduct 180 tests per day. The result of the PCR test — which costs AED 150 — will be sent to the customer within 24 hours.
Launching COVID-19 PCR testing station across malls in Dubai is in line with the DHA’s preemptive and precautionary measures to combat the disease and is in line with the DHA’s keenness to ensure that Dubai residents can have easy access to COVID-19 PCR testing.
The authority launched the three stations in coordination with relevant authorities while providing all the equipment and medical cadres needed.
