Monitor changes in your health
Paying close attention to changes in your health, especially if you've recently returned from an overseas trip.
Singapore health authorities are closely monitoring the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019), a new SARS-related virus. If you experience flu-like symptoms, such as a fever, cough or sore throat, within 14 days upon returning to Singapore, you should:
- Wear a mask and seek medical attention. Call the clinic ahead of your visit and inform the attending physician of your recent travel history;
- Avoid visiting loved ones in a hospital, as warded patients are more susceptible to infection.
