Travel Advisory

Singaporeans are advised to defer all travel to Hubei Province and all non-essential travel to Mainland China.

If you’ve been travelling, monitor your health closely for two weeks upon return to Singapore and seek medical attention promptly if you feel unwell. You should inform your doctor of your travel history.

If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath), you should wear a mask and call the clinic ahead of the visit.
