Are You Staying at Home Yet? There Is No Room for Complacency.

Dear Singaporeans,

From Mar 21, all Singapore residents returning from abroad and short-term visitors will have to observe a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

With 283 new confirmed infections over the last week (March 17-23) and a majority of those being imported cases, it is imperative that all of us adhere to the conditions of these SHNs. While they may seem like a huge inconvenience, our compliance with this is critical for dampening the spread of COVID-19 in the community. There is no room for complacency at this time.

We would further advise that all family/house members cohabiting the premises with the recent traveller also serve a 14-day isolation period. Inform your schools and workplaces and let them know. These shows of responsibility to the community are appreciated by all.

If you and your family members don’t have to serve any Stay-Home notices, but are experiencing symptoms such as flu, cough or difficulty in breathing – just stay at home. Don’t overthink it and always defer on the side of safety for such issues.

Speedoc is an organisation designed to provide medical house call services. This will allow you to call for a doctor and receive medical attention from the safety and comfort of your own home.

To make house-call visits more affordable and accessible in light of the COVID-19 situation, we are doubling the total number of doctors on standby effectively immediately.

Our consultation fees starting today are as follows: 8am-8pm: $100 8pm-12am: $150 12am-8am: $200

These prices are not inclusive of medication.

If you need to see a doctor in the comfort and safety of your home, give us a call at [+65 8180 8948](tel:+6581808948] or download our Android App or iPhone App. We are available 24/7.

Thank you.
