Precautionary Measures for the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
We are closely monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). As it evolves, we would like to share the Club’s action plan on dealing with viral outbreaks.
In accordance with recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH), the Club has implemented various precautionary measures, including increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic areas. The safety of Members, staff, and guests is of our top priority, while trying to avoid disruptions to the largest extent possible.
MOH Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON)
The Club uses the DORSCON framework to determine its risk management approach:
Virus is mild or severe, but not easily transmitted
Virus is severe and easily transmitted, but is being contained
Virus is severe and easily transmitted, but has not spread widely in Singapore
Virus is severe, easily transmitted, and is spreading widely in Singapore
Precautionary Measures in the Club
The Club will be implementing the following precautionary measures to circumvent the spread of the virus within the premises:
- Members/Guests who are unwell or exhibit symptoms of flu are advised to stay at home. Security may perform routine health checks upon entry, and will turn away any individual who may display such symptoms.
- Staff with similar symptoms as above will be asked to stay at home and consult their doctors, and will not be put in contact with any Members.
- Frontline staff may be advised to wear masks when serving Members/Guests.
Due to an island-wide shortage of masks, the Club apologizes that it will be unable to issue masks to Members and guests. You are advised to bring your own masks, if you wish.
We are doing our part to ensure the utmost health and safety of our Members within these premises. We believe that our Members will take responsible steps necessary to prevent further spread of this virus.
