I will tell my patients to practise the following measures:

  1. Wash hands frequently
  2. Practise social distancing, avoid crowded areas
  3. Stay home unless it is absolutely necessary to go out
  4. Wear a mask if possible
  5. Avoid touching your hands, face and mouth
  6. Seek medical attention early if you are feeling unwell

You may also use this newly-launched website, sgcovidcheck.gov.sg, to guide you on where to seek medical attention, depending on your symptoms and risk factors.

Best regards
