According to the Singapore Ministry of Health advice, with the condition now at a controlled state, the following advice applies in the instance that you test positive.
Medically vulnerable persons (i.e. seniors and those with chronic medical conditions) that have ARI symptoms, as well as persons with severe, prolonged or worsening ARI symptoms, should see a doctor. The updated advisory for persons who are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 can be found at this link.
Persons with mild ARI symptoms should stay at home until symptoms resolve.
If there is a need to go out while symptomatic, or if asymptomatic but tested positive for COVID-19, we should exercise social responsibility – minimise social interactions, wear a mask, avoid crowded places, do not visit vulnerable settings such as hospitals and nursing homes, and do not have contact with vulnerable persons, such as the elderly.
The latest vaccination guidelines can be found at this link.
While no longer required under the temporary COVID-19 regulations, the MOH will retain the practice of mask-wearing for visitors, staff and patients in healthcare and residential care settings, where there is interaction with patients and in indoor patient-facing areas.
The MOH encourages the community to wear a mask outside your home especially if you are elderly or immuno-compromised, in crowded places, when visiting or interacting with vulnerable persons, or while you are unwell with symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory infections.
Travellers who experience symptoms of respiratory infection and/or test COVID-19 positive are advised to defer their travels and recover at place of accommodation.
All travellers will be subject to the prevailing border measures upon entry to Singapore, and are responsible for all associated costs where applicable. While there are no longer any COVID-19 border measures, the Vaccinated Travel Framework remains in place for reactivation in the event of any international developments of concern. There may also be other administrative or health requirements for entry into Singapore, such as yellow fever vaccination. Travellers are advised to check the ICA website for the latest border measures before entering Singapore.
