Singapore: The Multi-Ministry Taskforce that decided re-opening of economy, has put in place measures to control the infection.
Since 21 March 2020, all incoming travellers, including Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents, and Long Term Pass holders, have been required to serve a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN). Besides the SHN, a testing regime for all incoming travellers before the end of their SHN has now been introduced.
The testing regime will apply to all travellers entering Singapore from 17 June 2020, 2359 hours. It is an additional precautionary measure to detect the virus, especially given the risks of asymptomatic cases.
“We will monitor the results of these tests and may make adjustments to the testing” Said Ministry of Health in a Statement
“Those who enter Singapore would have to bear the costs of fulfilling these requirements, as part of the cost of travel in a COVID-19 world.” It Said.
