In this video, I will show you how a COVID-19 swab test is done and I will explain how it feels like.
Is it necessary for Speech Therapist to go through COVID-19 swab test?
We feel that it is very important for speech therapists / pathologists in Singapore to go through the COVID-19 swab test. As this will not just boost clients’ confidence but also to ensure safety especially when it comes to physical visits such as home or clinic speech or swallowing therapy sessions.
All our speech therapists at Singapore Swallowing Specialists and Speech Therapy Works, Singapore have undergone COVID-19 swab testing, and we have all tested negative.
