Employers are advised to put in place measures to reduce close contact
Singapore's Ministry of Health (MOH) released today (13 March) additional precautionary measures against COVID-19.
Employers are advised to put in place measures to reduce close contact where feasible, said minister Gan Kim Yong in a press conference.
He urged employers to implement tele-commuting and video-conferencing where possible.
He also encouraged employers to stagger work hours and allow employees to commute at off-peak hours. Seating in meeting rooms and work stations could be spaced further apart, suggested the minister.
The additional measures follows the World Health Organization's (WHO) declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic (11 March).
