Description

Singapore imposed a 14-day 'Stay Home Notice' (SHN) on travellers and returning residents to reduce secondary transmission from imported cases of COVID-19. In this article, we describe the processes and enforcement of SHN, and explore the issues faced by individuals under such quarantine, and the steps taken to address them. ᄅ International Society of Travel Medicine 2020.
