The Government of Singapore has sent out an advisory reinforcing measures on leave of absence (LOA) as a precautionary measure to prevent possible spread of infections.
The following directives have been provided on LOA measures to combat the Wuhan coronavirus:
✔ It is now mandatory for all workers returning from Mainland China to be placed on a 14-day LOA.
✔ All employers to report to Ministry of Manpower (MOM) when their workers are returning, so that their return can be staggered.
✔ For those with difficulties finding accommodation for their workers to serve their LOA, the Govt will work with them to provide dorm facilities.
✔ S$100 a day will be provided to support employers with workers on LOA, and MOM will waive the foreign worker levy for LOA period
