As the number of infected people by the Covid-19 continues to increase, the Government of Singapore is doing all within its power to prevent the spread by giving Stay Home Notice for Singaporeans and all travellers entering the country from ASEAN and other countries. The prevention measures didn’t stop there. Now, all museums and religious places are closed to lower the spread speed of Covid-19.
Asian Civilisation Museum in Closed
A staff at Asian Civilisation Museum was tested positive for Covid-19 and thus to prevent any more spread, the museum is now closed. This staff was in the United States of America between 9-14 March 2020.
Reported by channelnewsasia.com, The Asian Civilisation Museum will close on Thursday and Friday to do a thorough cleaning and disinfecting. A temperature check will be done twice a day in the museum while the museum will continue to take actions to ensure the safety of the staff, and visitors.
St Andrew’s Cathedral is Closed
Following up to its post on 18 March 2020, St Andrew Cathedral sent a shocking which stated “We regret to inform that a member of our church has been confirmed to have Covid-19 infection and is currently warded in hospital.” The patient was in a service on 15 March 2020 at 9 A.M.
The church is now closed until 3 April 2020 at 11.59 P.M. to avoid increasing the number of Covid-19 patients in Singapore. The contaminated areas and objects will be disinfected. This church has also dismissed its weekly service on 14 February 2020.
Mosques in Singapore are closed
Since 13 March 2020, all mosques in Singapore had been closed from the public. Disinfection has also taken place and even Friday prayers have been cancelled while lectures and playgrounds are closed for 14 days until 27 March 2020.
One of the most famous landmarks in Singapore, Sultan Mosque, has been closed as well. There will be no activities done here until 26 March 2020.
Hopefully, this plague will come to an end very soon and people can finally live freely once again. Carrying daily activities have become slightly more difficult now. #SGB_Team will keep on reminding #SGB_Family to maintain a good hygiene habit and stay alert!
