SINGAPORE (June 15): Come 23:59 on June 17, Singaporeans returning from selected countries can serve their stay home notices (SHN) at home, instead of at dedicated facilities as is the current practice.
Long-term pass holders may serve their SHN at a place of residence owned or rented by themselves or their family. Otherwise, they can put up at an accommodation facility such as a hotel, at their own cost.
However, Singaporeans and long-term pass holders will still have to undergo a swab test for the coronavirus a few days before their SHN ends. They must also bear the cost of this, unlike the current practice where the government picks up the tab for the test and stay at the dedicated facility, National Development Minister Lawrence Wong said at a Covid-19 multi-ministry taskforce briefing on Monday.
