Notice: COVID-19

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.

We have confirmed one imported case of Novel Coronavirus in Singapore today. The patient presented at the SGH Emergency Department with fever and cough on 22 January and was immediately isolated. SGH has in place strict screening, isolation and infection control measures. MOH was informed of the case promptly and has initiated contact tracing.

If you have a fever or cough and have travelled to China in the past 14 days, seek medical attention promptly and inform your doctor about your travel history.

As part of our heightened surveillance and to reduce risk of infection, the number of visitors to the wards will be limited to two visitors per patient at any one time during our visiting hours. Thank you for your understanding. We continue to be on heightened vigilance and keep our focus on caring for our patients.
