Guidelines on workplaces with suspected or confirmed cases:
COVID-19: What should employers do if there are suspected or confirmed cases at the workplace?
MOM’s guidelines say:
For suspect cases, employers should:
👀 Identify close contacts
📝 Notify others of test outcomes
👨⚕ Get employees to monitor health, adopt good personal hygiene, see a doctor immediately and stay home if unwell
For confirmed cases, employers should:
🔁 Cooperate with contact tracing officers from MOH
⛔ Vacate and cordon-off the area where the case worked; no need to evacuate floor/building if there’s no sustained and close contact
🧽 Clean and disinfect thoroughly: go.gov.sg/NEAadvisory
