16th Feb 2021

1.     As of 16 February 2021, 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed that there are no new cases of locally transmitted COVID-19 infection.

2.     There is 1 imported case, who had already been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore.

3.     From 5 February, newly arrived Work Permit and S Pass holders in the Construction, Marine and Process sectors, foreign domestic workers and confinement nannies, who have recent travel history to higher-risk countries/ regions, are progressively required to undergo mandatory on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and serology tests. These have enabled us to quickly identify persons who have recovered from an old COVID-19 infection, and are no longer infective to others by the time they arrived in Singapore, and to exclude them from our daily case count.

4.     We are still working through the details of the cases, and further updates will be shared via the MOH press release that will be issued tonight.
