from 30 September 2022 onward, the Ministry of Public Health will handle COVID-19 as an ‘infectious disease under watch’, instead of a ‘dangerous infectious disease’.

According to the CCSA, from 30 September 2022 onward, the Ministry of Public Health will handle COVID-19 as an ‘infectious disease under watch’, instead of a ‘dangerous infectious disease’.

Although there is some relaxation of measures, the public is still encouraged to follow smart measures and guidelines to prevent the disease and keep the situation safe.



Here are some useful guidelines:
– For those who have respiratory syndromes, it is recommended that they follow DMHTT when in close contact with others;
– As for the general public, please wear a mask when going to crowded or low-ventilation places. Doing an ATK test is advised if risk symptoms appear;
– For organizations and companies, it is suggested that staff be regularly monitored and screened. If there is a high increase in the number of cases, they should contact relevant agencies immediately. (PRD)
