MSF has been stepping up precautions to protect our preschool community and other vulnerable groups.
Update as of 24 Mar: Preschool and Primary school-aged children will be required to stay away from preschool/school/student care for 14 days on Leave of Absence (LOA) - even if they have not travelled - if they are living with someone who:
(i) has returned from US, UK or ASEAN countries from 14 Mar; or
(ii) returns from any other country from 25 Mar
This also applies to enrolled clients in MSF facilities.
Day 0 starts on the day the traveller returns to Singapore. The child can return to preschool/school/student care on day 15 if he/she is well.
Preschools, Student Care Centres (SCCs), Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC)/Pilot for Private Intervention Providers (PPIPs) will continue operations with the necessary precautionary and safe distancing measures in place.
You can find more details in our latest advisories and announcements.
