Lifting of SARS Measures from 18 Aug 2003

Since the last probable SARS case in Singapore was isolated on 11 May 2003, there have been no new probable SARS cases here. The World Health Organisation also declared that the global SARS outbreak had been contained when it removed Taiwan from the list of SARS affected countries on 5th July 2003.

In view of the improved SARS situation globally and locally, the Ministry of Health has progressively stepped down some of the SARS control measures since 26 July. With effect from 18th August 2003, the following additional measures will be lifted:

  • There will be no restriction on the movement of patients between hospitals, public and private alike. However, hospitals have been reminded to remain vigilant. Hospitals are to continue to assess their patients carefully and adopt the appropriate infection control measures.

  • The One-visitor rule will be relaxed. All patients in hospitals will be allowed two visitors at any one time from a list of up to four registered visitors per patient per hospital. However, adult patients in isolation rooms will continue to be allowed only one visitor out of a list of up to four registered persons.

  • Currently, incoming passengers have to complete a Health Declaration Card (HDC) at Immigration Checkpoints and are also screened for fever before entry into Singapore. With the stabilisation of the global SARS situation, the HDC will be discontinued. Temperature screening will continue to form the first line of defence against possible imported SARS cases. The Ministry will monitor the global situation closely and will reintroduce the HDC should there be a need to do so.

Despite the suspension of these measures, all Singaporeans are urged to maintain vigilance to guard against any recurrence of SARS. If the SARS situation deteriorates, there may be a need to reactivate some of these measures. Singaporeans are strongly encouraged to continue taking their temperatures regularly and to practice good hygiene habits.
