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
