Precautions that you can take


     We urge Singaporeans to remain calm and vigilant. Singaporeans can continue to play their part by being socially responsible and practising good personal hygiene habits (click here to view Health Advisory). They should wash their hands regularly. Those who are unwell should wear a mask and see a doctor immediately. But there is no need to wear a mask if you are well.

     Given the evolving situation, Singaporeans who need to travel to the affected areas are advised to regularly check MOH’s website for updates. 

Health Advisory

     Singaporeans are advised to defer all travel to Hubei Province and non-essential travel to Mainland China.   

     All travellers should monitor their health closely for two weeks upon return to Singapore and seek medical attention promptly if they feel unwell.  Travellers should inform their doctor of their travel history.  If travellers have a fever or respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath), they should wear a mask and call the clinic ahead of the visit.  

     Travellers and members of the public should adopt the following precautions at all times:


  • Avoid consumption of raw or undercooked meats;
  • Avoid crowded places and close contact with people who are unwell or showing symptoms of illness;
  • Observe good personal hygiene;
  • Practise frequent hand washing with soap (e.g. before handling food or eating, after going to toilet, or when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing);
  • Wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms such as a cough or runny nose;
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue paper when coughing or sneezing, and dispose the soiled tissue paper in the rubbish bin immediately; and
  • Seek medical attention promptly if you are feeling unwell.

Where to Collect Your Mask

The Government will give every Singapore household a pack of 4 masks. From 10 Feb to 29 Feb, local households that were unable to collect their masks earlier may collect them at their constituency's Community Clubs. To collect your masks:

1. Go to www.maskgowhere.gov.sg and key in your postal code to find the location and contact information of your constituency's Community Club/Centre (CC). 
2. You will need to bring your NRIC for verification.

Please keep the masks for use by those who are unwell.  Do not use them immediately, or if you are well.  

To learn how you can collect your mask, watch the video here.
