For returning Singapore residents and long-term pass holders

As a precautionary measure taken to minimise the risk of additional imported cases of COVID-19, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce has introduced a Stay-Home Notice (SHN) to be issued to returning Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders (including work passes and permits, Student’s Pass, Dependant’s Pass and Long-Term Visit Pass) with travel history within the last 14 days to the following regions:

Regions With Effect From
Daegu city or Cheongdo county, Republic of Korea
26 February 2020, 2359 hrs
Mainland China (outside of Hubei) 18 February 2020, 2359 hrs

Those under the SHN will have to remain in their place of residence at all times for 14 days. The Government will continue to implement surveillance and enforcement measures to ensure compliance with the SHN, so that the well-being of the community is not put at risk.

ICA will be conducting mandatory checks on Singapore citizens, permanent residents and Long-Term Visit Pass holders who are placed on a 14-day SHN, from the day of return from mainland China or Republic of Korea. Affected individuals will receive calls from us.

Please note that we do not ask for any financial details during our calls to you. If you receive a call from us and wish to verify the authenticity of the phone call, you can call ICA at 6391 6571.

Precautions that you can take (extracted from MOH website)

We urge members of public to remain calm and vigilant. You can continue to play your part by being socially responsible and adopt good personal hygiene practices (see Health Advisory below).

Given the evolving situation and ongoing investigations in China, Singaporeans who need to travel to the affected areas are advised to regularly check MOH website for updates.

Health Advisory (extracted from MOH website)

Singaporeans are advised to defer all travel to Hubei Province and non-essential travel to Mainland China.

All travellers should monitor their health closely for two weeks upon return to Singapore and seek medical attention promptly if they feel unwell. Travellers should inform their doctor of their travel history. If travellers have a fever or respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath), they should wear a mask and call the clinic ahead of the visit.

Travellers and members of the public should adopt the following precautions at all times:

  • Avoid contact with live animals including poultry and birds, and consumption of raw and undercooked meats;
  • Avoid crowded places and close contact with people who are unwell or showing symptoms of illness;
  • Observe good personal hygiene;
  • Practise frequent hand washing with soap (e.g. before handling food or eating, after going to toilet, or when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing);
  • Wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms such as a cough or runny nose;
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue paper when coughing or sneezing, and dispose the soiled tissue paper in the rubbish bin immediately; and
  • Seek medical attention promptly if you are feeling unwell.
