Dear Staff,

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced updates to Safe Management Measures in Phase 3 (Heightened Alert).


Conduct of Lessons

All lectures will be conducted online. All tutorials, labs and practicals should be conducted face to face on campus. Students must leave immediately after in-campus classes and those not having lessons on campus on a certain day should not be back on campus that day.


Instructions on Attendance and Other SMMs 

Masks shall be worn at all times, except during meal times, on campus. Face shields as substitutes for masks are not effective and not allowed.


For work that can be done from home, ROs need to ensure that no more than 50% of staff for such work are at the campus at any point in time, regardless of their vaccination status. ROs will have discretion to work with such staff on the work arrangements, with a norm of 2 to 3 days at campus a week.


We should continue to stagger start times and allow flexible workplace hours. This will spread out staff across time and place, and reduces possible congregation of staff at common spaces at or near the campus, such as entrances, exits, lobbies, food courts, pantries. It also reduces congestion of people in public places, including public transport. Timings of lunch and other breaks should also be staggered accordingly.

 


Others


All work-related events must adhere to prevailing workplace Safe Management Measures, and prevailing framework for organising official events and activities, and are subjected to the following requirements:

  1. The number of persons per event must be capped at 50 persons to limit the risk of exposure to infection; and
  2. Attendees must maintain at least 1-metre safe distancing between individual attendees.

 

Meals should not be the main feature of the event, i.e. food or drinks should only be served if incidental to the workplace event (e.g. the meeting or conference extends over lunchtime). In addition, the food must be served individually with the participants seated while consuming. Participants should minimise the time that they are unmasked while eating.


Protocol if tested Positive for PCR or ART

The revised protocol is given in the table below.


Protocol

Description

Approach

1

Unwell and tested positive

• To see a doctor. If tested positive via PCR, you will either be placed by MOH on Home Recovery Protocol (HRP) by default or admitted to an appropriate care facility, if the home environment is not suitable.

Well but tested ART positive

• To self-isolate at home for the next 72 hours and inform RO.
• Please inform HR via sphr@sp.edu.sg
• After 72 hours, you can re-test and if negative may exit isolation and resume normal activities. If you become unwell at any time, you should see a doctor.
• If the result is positive, continue to self-isolate.
• To only return to campus after obtaining an ART negative result and take photo of negative result to forward to RO.
• If you become unwell refer to instructions in protocol 1.

Note: All staff who are affected by Protocol 2 need to have an ART negative result before they can leave home and return to campus.

Issued a Health Risk Warning (HRW) by MOH

• Upon being notified of the HRW (Day 1), you should immediately self-isolate.
• Inform RO.
• Self-isolate on Day 1 of being issued HRW and take ART test on the day of HRW issuance, and upload ART test result online based on MOH’s instructions in the HRW notification.
• Upload results at go.gov.sg/agsubmit
• You can continue with normal activities for the day if the test is negative.
• Please inform HR via sphr@sp.edu.sg
• For subsequent days, i.e. Day 2 to 7, you should test ART negative on same day before going out. If your daily ART test is negative, you may return to office to work.
• When returning to campus, to take photo and forward it to RO.
• Take ART test on Day 7. If ART test is negative no need for further testing.
• If test positive at any point during HRW, to follow instructions in Protocol 2.

Note: All staff who are affected by Protocol 3 need to have an ART negative result and inform RO before they can leave home and return to campus.
