Effective 8 Feb 2020, Saturday at 8am, all are required to complete a Declaration Form at the main entrance of SGH blocks. Unwell visitors and accompanying persons will not be allowed to enter the premises. The Hospital has also rolled out thermal scanning as a precaution. To keep you and your loved ones safe, only one designated visitor is allowed in the ward at any one time during our visiting hours between 12noon and 2pm, and from 5pm to 8.30pm. Each patient can have up to two designated visitors for the length of their hospital stay. For patients going to the clinics, they are allowed one accompanying person each. These measures may cause some conveniences but it will allow the Hospital to rapidly identify affected individuals in the event that contact tracing is required. It is also to minimise infection exposure. Anyone making false declarations can be prosecuted under the Infectious Diseases Act.
