SINGAPORE - Pilots and cabin crew from both local and foreign airlines will not be issued with stay-home notices (SHNs) after entering Singapore in the course of their work, provided various precautions, such as not leaving their hotels, are taken.

From 11.59pm on Friday (March 20), all Singaporeans, permanent residents, long-term pass holders and short-term visitors entering Singapore will be served with a 14-day stay-home notice. This means they have to remain in their place of residence at all times for two weeks after arriving.
