Latest advisory from MOH - MARCH 18, 2020 Click here for more information.
In view of the heightened risk of further importation of COVID-19 to Singapore, all are advised to defer all travel abroad with immediate effect. This supercedes MOH earlier advisory announced on 15 March to defer all non-essential travel abroad. The expansion of the travel advisory is to reduce the risk of infection with the virus when abroad, and spreading it to others when they return.
14-Day Stay-Home Notice for all travellers
To further reduce the risk of further importation leading to community spread in Singapore, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce will put in place additional measures for all travellers entering Singapore. From 20 March 2020, 2359 hours, all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, Long Term Pass holders and short term visitors entering Singapore will be issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).
Do not attend AAS events if you feel unwell. Wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
We thank you for your patience during this time. As a non-profit organization we will do all we can to limit disruption, and ask for your support and consideration in the event of cancellations or refunds.
