Dear Parents & Students,

Please make sure you are receiving our email updates in regards to the ongoing situation with the current Novel Coronavirus outbreak, and are adhering to all instructions from us, the MOH & MOE. We will list them, and key plot points, on this page for quick access:

Key points to Action: 

  • Click here to fill in your travel declaration form
  • Take temperatures of yourselves and your children before coming to Centre Stage, If you have a fever of 37.5 or above please stay at home.
  • If you, or your child, is unwell – please stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, generally practice good personal hygiene and avoid touching your face

Important highlights:

  • From 23 March 2020, 2359 hours, all short-term visitors (from anywhere in the world) will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore. Furthermore the Ministry of Manpower will only allow the entry/ return of work pass holders, including their dependents, for those providing essential services, such as in healthcare and transport.
  • As previously announced, all Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long Term Pass holders returning to Singapore will be issued a 14-day SHN. Persons under SHN must remain in their place of residence at all times.
  • Based on the 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[2], Japan, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom within the last 14 days will be issued with a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).[3] 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.
  • Based on the latest travel advisory from the government, as of 15 March 2020, the Stay-Home Notice (SHN*) now applies to travel to mainland China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Spain, France and Germany
  • Based on the latest travel advisory from the government, as of 4 March 2020, the Stay-Home Notice (SHN*) now applies to travel to mainland China, South Korea, Iran and Northern Italy.
  • *Under the SHN, they will have to remain in their place of residence at all times for a 14-day period after returning to Singapore
  • Important Information for anyone subject to SHN: If your child is currently outside Singapore and visits a SHN region in the 14 days prior to return to Singapore, they must begin SHN upon return. If your child has recent travel history to a SHN region (in the 14 days prior to return), SHN is required based on locations and dates of return to Singapore.
