  • We recommend using JPG or PNG files. HEIC files are not accepted. To make sure that your Apple device is not shooting in HEIC, please select “Most Compatible” instead of “High Efficiency” in the camera's format settings of your device settings.
  • The photo shouldn't exceed 50 MB, and the name of the file should only contain letters and numbers. 
  • We recommend uploading the picture from your gallery rather than taking a live picture.

8. Click Submit to complete the reporting process.

9. You should see a confirmation page verifying that your results have been received. To view your test results history, return to the COVID-19 Health Centre and they will be listed under COVID-19 tests.
