ADVISORY ON TIGHTENED MEASURES FOR SPORT AND PHYSICAL EXERCISE DURING THE EXTENDED CIRCUIT BREAKER PERIOD (TILL 1 JUNE 2020)

UPDATED 17 APR: ACTIVATION OF ACTIVESG SPORT HALLS

The Government has been working closely with employers to adapt to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, and to meet the needs of workers affected by the situation. There is an urgent need to provide alternative living areas for foreign workers (FWs) who provide essential services, and do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

SportSG has activated some of our sport facilities, which are temporarily closed, to accommodate these FWs. From today, ActiveSG sport halls at Pasir Ris, Jurong West, Clementi and Hougang will be housing these FWs progressively. Strict protocols will be in place to manage the FWs’ entry and presence at these Sport Centres.

Together with our fellow government agencies, we will ensure the safety of the FWs, our staff, and residents in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
