Forums > Living in Kunming > Many Condo complexes (小区) are giving Covid testing

Does anyone here have experience in getting the test done at Richland Hospital? This is the easiest place for me to go now that I can take a bus. We live way out at the beginning of the Z38 route, which goes to Beichen, then turns around.

Two questions:
Is Richland easy to navigate for someone who does not speak English?
Do the test results appear in the WeChat health app?

My wife and I have had tests done at Yan'an Hospital several times since the spring.

Results have always been in the 4-5 hour range except for that one time when they "lost" my swab somewhere between emergency and the lab.
Hospitals need to be fast because it affects admitting and even some surgeries.

I really hate the way the word "free" is used in the context of health care.

Ultimately, somebody is paying for it, and that means somebody is receiving a payment.

That may be what's driving the 24 hour testing requirement.

More tests - more profit.
Other cities, now including Chengdu have a 48 hour requirement, and that's the number that was given by the federal government.

This is indeed a screwed up mess with poor to no thought put into the plan.

1. My friend phoned the subway head office again this afternoon and was told once again that their is no requirement to show a test for the subway.

If people are being asked for it then there is evidence of miscommunication.

2. We live at the start/end of two bus routes (the only routes in our district).

My wife went to talk to one of the drivers who said there was indeed a requirement for testing on the buses - however - they don't have time to check everyone, especially in rush hour.

They still need to keep to their schedule.

3. They are now doing testing across the road from our community.

Big lineup and it's causing traffic jams as well.

Many, many complaints now from those people because they're being told that it will take 24 hours to get the results!

I think there has been a major miscommunication somewhere. I checked with a friend who i the GM of a Crowne Plaza hotel in Chongqing.

She had a look at the official notification from the government which they received the other day.
The requirement is for 48 hours testing before interprovincial travel (by plane, train or automobile).

There was not mention of 24 hours for anything local.
Does anyone in this group have access to either Yunnan or Kunming government websites to see if there is a local policy?

Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.

While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.

Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.

If I lived closer I would be a regular here.
