Important Notice for Coronavirus

All Singapore residents and long-term pass holders with a travel history to mainland China (outside of Hubei), and returning or coming to Singapore from 18 Feb 2020, 2359hr, will be issued a SHN upon their arrival in Singapore. Persons with travel history to Hubei will be placed on quarantine.   A person under SHN will have to remain in their place of residence at all times during the 14-day period, starting from the day of return. Day of return to Singapore is considered Day 0.  14-day count starts from the day after.  For example, for a student who returned on 19 Feb 2020, his / her SHN would be in effect until 4 Mar 2020.  The SHN would lapse on 5 Mar 2020.    This is stricter than the existing Leave of Absence (LOA) regime, which allowed persons on LOA to leave their homes briefly, for example, to buy their meals or household and other supplies.  

 For students, non-compliance with the SHN may result in disciplinary actions taken against them by their school, including the possibility of suspension or dismissal.  Failure to comply with the SHN may also be used as evidence against the individual in a prosecution under S21A of the Infectious Diseases Act.  It can also lead to the cancellation or shortening of immigration passes / permits by the relevant authorities.  

 Similar to those placed on LOA previously, those issued SHNs are not suspected to have been in close contact with confirmed cases, nor are they unwell or display symptoms of the virus. These individuals are bearing inconvenience for the benefit of the wider community.    

Persons with travel history to Hubei will be placed on quarantine.  
2 Day of return to Singapore is considered Day 0. 14-day count starts from the day after. For example, for a student who returned on 19 Feb 2020, his / her SHN would be in effect until 4 Mar 2020. The SHN would lapse on 5 Mar 2020.
