Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore announced (15-May-2021) the following safety measures have been implemented at Singapore Changi Airport due to 35 airport workers testing positive to COVID-19:
- Segregation to minimise interaction between travellers and airport staff to prevent transmission. Passengers arriving on flights from high risk countries will use a different arrival immigration hall, baggage belts and toilets from those arriving from lower risk countries;
- While 90% of frontline aviation workers have been vaccinated, the airport will increase vaccination operations for the remaining 10% of frontline workers, as well as other essential aviation workers;
- A special testing operation to quickly detect, isolate and treat any potential COVID-19 cases has been in progress since 09-May-2021;
- Changi Airport T3 B2 has been closed since 10-May-2021 for cleaning and disinfection;
- Singapore‘s Ministry of Health is offering free COVID-19 testing for members of the public who had visited Changi Airport Terminal 3 from 01-May-2021 onwards.
