Based on this latest situation, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce will put in place additional border restriction measures. From 16 March 2020, 2359 hours, all travellers (including Singapore Residents, Long Term Pass holders, and short-term visitors) entering Singapore with recent travel history to ASEAN countries, Japan, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom within the last 14 days will be issued with a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN). In addition, they will have to provide proof of the place where they will serve the 14-day SHN, for example a hotel booking covering the entire period, or a place of residence they or their family members own. They may also be swabbed for testing for COVID-19, even if asymptomatic. This is because of the risk of community transmission in these countries and evidence of cases that have been imported from these countries into Singapore.

  2. 「明るい北朝鮮」とも揶揄されるシンガポールは国家による徹底した管理で、海外からの感染防止水際対策を重視しているようです。Causeway Linkを経由して陸路から入国通勤するマレーシア人労働者も今回、発表された措置の対象となるのかどうか、よくわかりません。不可能なように思いますが、「明るい北朝鮮」ならできるのでしょうか?
