Under the Ministry of Health's (MoH) instruction, ATC will be closed from Dec 18 to 24, for cleaning and disinfection, and all workers will undergo Covid-19 testing.

ATA IMS said it will continue to adhere to strict Covid-19 preventive measures, and closely cooperate with the MoH and relevant authorities to enhance the group’s Covid-19 preventive standard operating procedures for all its operating premises to ensure the safety and well-being of the employees.
