Following the raising of the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) alert level from Yellow to Orange, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has issued an updated advice to Financial Institutions on aspects of their business continuity plans, which support their staff and customers and ensure security standards.

These measures are in addition to those recommended by the Ministry of Health Ministry and the Ministry of Manpower (with its tripartite partners - the National Trades Union Congress and the Singapore National Employers Federation) in the general advisory to employers and workplaces on continued operations while minimising risks of community spread of the COVID-19.

For outlines on employer obligations and important considerations across the Asia Pacific region, please see our Asia Pacific Regional Update - Coronavirus Outbreak.

In addition to summarising MAS' advice, we also report on the Ministry of Manpower's Leave of Absence Support Programme.
