MOF Precautionary Measures against COVID-19 Wuhan Coronavirus

UPDATE 18Nov2020, 7pm

Hi everyone, as many are asking about the latest announcement by Sport Singapore, please note this announcement and clarification by us MOF: Yes we understand that some DUS school fields are able to be booked by the public. However, 11aside friendlies and leagues cannot resume, as the Group of 5 social distancing measure and NO INTER MINGLING are still in place and will be actively enforced by the authorities. Do refer to the links below.
We are eager to start soon, but we all will need to be more patient for now:  we will let you all know when games can be safely resumed! Meanwhile, take care, stay clean, healthy and sane!

UPDATE 19May2020

To everyone in our community: looks like the circuit breaker for soccer and sports has been extended to earliest 1 July (or as the government advisory says: over the next few months commencing 1 July) – so no games before then (and perhaps not immediately after too) – we will let you all know when games can be safely resumed! Meanwhile, take care, stay clean, healthy and sane!

COVID-19 Latest Updates for all ActiveSG Sport Facilities - ActiveSG 2020-03-25 23-25-32

 

 

UPDATE 25March 2020, 1735 hrs:

Dear Teams, with the new COVID-19 measures introduced last night, we will be pausing all games this weekend (28/29Mar) and also NEXT weekend (4/5Apr). As for the rest of April and beyond, we are still awaiting news, due to differing information at this moment by SportSG and Ministry of Health.
Although many teams are still eager to carry on to play, based on the announcement made by Ministry of Health yesterday, some players and parents are understandably concerned. Also, all Sports Centres we spoke to have said as of right now, soccer fields remain playable, which we are puzzled, although they also say there may be updates/changes over the next few days.
*Nevertheless we will be pausing for the next two weeks: so stay fit, clean, healthy & we will resume league games once safe to do so, thank you!*
—————————–
Dear Footballers, we at MOF are aware of and take health & safety precautions regarding the COVID-19 Wuhan Coronavirus very very seriously. At the same time, as the situation in Singapore is nowhere near a state of emergency, we do not wish to be alarmist and wish to continue to provide an active, healthy lifestyle without fear. If games  are permitted to go on, the below measures are imposed. Participation in any of our activities will mean acceptance of these conditions.
To all managers and footballers, please take note:

a) If you the manager or your footballers or someone in any of your direct family exhibit any flu symptoms, please DO NOT play in our games (they are not supposed to any way, correct?)

How coronavirus symptoms compare with those of the flu, allergies, and the common cold, Business Insider - Business Insider Sin… 2020-03-13 14-48-27

b) If you the manager or your footballers or someone in any of your direct and next-most-immediate family have visited the following countries/regions/cities since since 1 January 2020:

Hubei province (China), mainland China, South Korea, Iran, Japan and northern Italy*.

* Refers to the following 8 administrative regions of northern Italy: Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige / Südtirol.

you will most likely to subject to an instruction from the Ministry of Health to be isolated/self/home-quarantined. Even if that is completed, we ask that you speak to us to verify your zero-risk of illness, before coming to our games. Failure to means an automatic breach – and we will impose a fine per affected individual of $300 or expenses/costs/etc MOF has to make as a result of your breach, whichever is higher
c) Observe good basic hygiene.
d) Record body temperatures regularly. If you are attending our program & games, please at least four hours before, take have your own and your team members’ temperature taken. If you do not have a regular body temperature (The normal human body temperature range is typically stated as 36.5–37.5 °C), kindly do not attend our program & games. If this affects your team members’ availability for your game, please be reminded that you have to ensure that fixtured games must be played by your team (as we are not at an epidemic level, only precautionary, it is not expected that many members of your team, indeed many members of the public, to fall ill).
e) Our events are small scale – you will encounter and spend more time with much more people in daily public transportation. We see no reason to panic and hence these precautionary measures are imposed. 
f) Keep body contact to a minimum: No Hand Shakes before/after games. Applies to Referees/Managers/Players etc.
 We take health & safety measures very seriously.Participation in any of our activities will mean acceptance of these conditions. Should there be a breach of our conditions above by any manager or team or footballers, we reserve all rights to impose liability & charges onto you. 

 

That said, we look forward to weekly games, thank you!
