Measures for Workplace Health Management:
More frequent cleaning of areas with high human contact, such as counters where customers are served and rooms where visitors are hosted.
More frequent cleaning of general public access areas such as lifts, pantries, toilets, and bin areas.
Adopt the sanitation and hygiene advisories disseminated by the National Environmental Agency (NEA). NEA has also developed and released interim guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting areas exposed to confirmed cases of COVID-19, and provided a list of companies that can carry out disinfection works. These advisories have been disseminated to hotels, public and private transport operators, and F&B outlets, including hawker centres.
