  • Returning Singapore residents and long-term pass holders have to serve a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) once they arrive in the country. More than 21,000 stay-home notices have been issued to date, but there have been reports of alleged breaches. Responding to questions in Parliament, Home Affairs and Law Minister K Shanmugam said those who breach the stay-home notice will be charged in court. Under the Infectious Diseases Act, those who breach the rules could be jailed up to six months and fined $10,000.
