In light of the recent outbreak of Novel Coronavirus that originated from Wuhan, we are taking necessary precautions in accordance with the latest advisories published by the Ministry of Health (MOH).
In the interest and well-being of our members, beneficiaries and staff, we will implement the following measures with effect from 31 January 2020:
Travel declarations for all visitors
This applies to all visitors to the iCosy Hub (including but not limited to walk-ins, members, beneficiaries, family members who come for tele-visit, volunteers, suppliers, delivery personnel). Visitors who look unwell will be offered a mask and advised to seek medical attention.
Well-being of our staff
We value the health and well-being of our staff, and urge all to remain vigilant and adopt good personal hygiene practices. All staff are reminded to wash their hands frequently with soap and water, and avoid touching the face and hair. Staff can choose to don a face mask where necessary.
In addition to above, with effect from 10 February 2020, we will implement the following measures:
Temperature-taking for visitors and staff
Using non-contact thermometer, we will record the body temperature for every visitor upon entry to iCosy Hub. If the temperature indicates a fever (37.5˚C), the visitor will be given a mask and advised to seek medical attention if they feel unwell.
All staff will also record their temperature twice a day.
Large group events and activities
Large group and communal activities will be suspended for the time being until further notice, while we continue to monitor the situation closely.
Everyone’s health is important.
If you are feeling unwell and demonstrate symptoms such as cough, runny nose, fever and shortness of breath, please wear a mask and seek medical attention promptly. Please also refer to the following link on when to wear a mask (https://www.healthhub.sg/live-healthy/1204/when-a-mask-is-a-must).
You may refer to the MOH website (https://www.moh.gov.sg/2019-ncov-wuhan) for the official updates on the coronavirus situation or sign up at go.gov.sg/whatsapp to receive the latest information via WhatsApp. We advise everyone not to speculate and/or spread unfounded rumours from unverified sources.
