Advisory on Wuhan novel Coronavirus outbreak

In view of the screening to be held this Sunday, we are monitoring the Wuhan novel Coronavirus (nCov) situation in Singapore closely. Currently, there is no evidence of community spread of the virus.

To all who are intending to come for the screening, let's play our part to keep ourselves and fellow Paanas safe and healthy:

Do take socially responsible actions, such as practicing good personal hygiene, and washing hands frequently with soap and water, especially after contact with respiratory secretions (e.g. after sneezing and coughing). If you develop flu-like symptoms, see a doctor immediately, stay at home, and wear a mask to minimise spreading to others. Those who are well need not wear a mask.

We seek your understanding that we may have to request attendees who are unwell to excuse yourselves from the screening.

Our door gift is a pack of 2 masks and anti-bacterial wipes (in NEWS member colours)! It is called The Practise Good Hygiene, Be Socially Responsible & Remain Calm Pack :D Come early if you want to get the colour of your favourite member!
