Important Information

In view of the Ministry of Health’s guidance on hospital visitors, please take note of the following:

  • A general ward patient may pre-register up to 1 visitor* for the duration of their admission. Click here for the registration advisory.
  • Patients whose length of stay exceeds 7 days may be allowed to add one more registered visitor from to 7th day.
  • Patients can receive 1 visit each day during visiting hours.
  • One registered visitor** is allowed for patients at our outpatient centers/clinics and at our A&E.
  • Strictly no visitors for suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.
  • Keep your visit to 30 minutes. Eligible visitors for critically ill patients and caregivers must undergo an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at CGH, which will remain valid for 24 hours, to extend this duration. This is regardless of the visitor’s vaccination status.

  • Please do not visit the hospital if you:
    - have flu-like symptoms (e.g. fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, breathlessness or loss of taste / smell etc.)
    - are issued Medical Certificates (MCs), Persons Under Quarantine (PUQs) and persons on Home Quarantine Order (HQO)
    - have received the Health Risk Warning (HRW) or Health Risk Alert (HRA) SMS issued by MOH. Visitors who received the HRW will be allowed entry only when they produce a negative result for their second PCR swab; those who received the HRA can visit only when they produce a negative Antigen Rapid Test result after 14 days from their last exposure
    - are under 12 years old

    OR in the last 14 days, you had:
    - Travelled outside of Singapore
    - Close contact with someone who is a confirmed COVID-19 case or is part of a COVID-19 cluster

    All visitors, vendors and patients are to record their SafeEntry entry and exit via TraceTogether:
  • Open your TraceTogether App
  • Select SafeEntry check in and scan QR code
  • Show check-in pass with TraceTogether logo
Or
  • Present the QR code printed on your TraceTogether Token to be scanned

Anyone entering the hospital premises must complete the Declaration Form and check-in to the SafeEntry system with the TraceTogether app or token. Under the Infectious Diseases Act, it is an offence to provide false information.

    * The limit can be reviewed for visitors (including caregivers) for specific groups of patients, e.g. those who are critically ill. Up to 5 pre-registered visitors are allowed, with 2 visitors at any one time.
    ** This includes caregivers.
     

    In view of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we seek your understanding that these guidelines are subject to change.

    General Visiting Guidelines

    • All visitors to the wards have to register before they enter.
    • Wear a mask with good filtration capability at all times. These include reusable masks that are made up of at least two layers of fabric, or surgical masks.
    • No more than one visitor* is allowed at the patient’s bedside at any one time each day.
    • Keep your visit to 30 minutes as our patients need rest to recover. Eligible visitors for critically ill patients and caregivers must undergo an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at CGH, which will remain valid for 24 hours, to extend this duration. This is regardless of the visitor’s vaccination status.
    • If treatment is required for the patient, our staff may ask visitors to leave.
    • ​Children under the age of 12 will not be allowed to visit inpatients. Exceptions will be made for certain groups of patients such as critically-ill inpatients, palliative inpatients and inpatients with special needs.
    • Be considerate and keep noise levels down. Noise is a source of stress that interrupts patients’ sleep and rest. 

    • Maintain a safe distance of at least 1 metre and refrain from interaction with other patients or visitors.
    • All visitors are required to wear a mask at all times, and are not allowed to consume any food or drinks within the ward.                    
    • Refrain from using the patient toilets in the wards and avoid sitting on patient beds. 
    • Wash your hands with soap and water, or sanitise them with alcohol rub before and after visiting a patient.
    • Switch your mobile phone to “SILENT” mode, and speak softly on the phone to avoid disturbing patients. In the ICU, mobile phones cannot be used within 2 metres of any medical equipment.
    • Smoking or drinking alcohol is not allowed on hospital premises.
