What must I do when I am issued a Stay-Home Notice? How will this affect my household members?

If you are issued  a Stay-Home Notice (SHN), you will have to remain in your place of residence at all times during the 14-day period. This is stricter than the existing LOA regime, which had allowed returnees to leave their home briefly. You should make your own arrangements to procure food and daily necessities. This could include requesting your house and dormitory mates to help procure these for you or ordering home delivery services. We will also provide support for those who need help:

Your household members may continue to live with you and carry on with their daily activities.  However, you and your household members should observe good personal hygiene practices.  If you become unwell, avoid contact with your family members and seek medical attention immediately.

  1. Post game handshakes are encouraged to be replaced with Three Cheers or Foot Shake to continue to reflect sportsmanship, and we encourage Coaches to remind your players / captain of this protocol.
  2. We do seek Clubs understanding that access to the pitch may have some queues and we imagine some parents may not fully receive or digest the message regarding access to the pitch. Hence we encourage you to circulate the above measures widely to avoid unnecessary debate at the entrance to the pitch.
  3. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as things progress and develop while taking advise from the Government agencies.
  4. In the event that teams will end up not having enough player, we can reduce the no. of player ie
