Previously, the government said that in order for Singapore to reopen, more testing must be done.

And it’s not just reactive testing where people are tested only after they’re unwell.

It’s proactive testing.

And Their Hard Work Has Paid Off

So far, 7 pre-school teachers have tested positive for Covid-19.

The one-time compulsory swab tests started on 15 May and are expected to complete at the end of this month.

ECDA revealed that other than the 7 pre-school teachers, about 15,300 tests came back negative.

Expect Positive Cases

The authorities have expected to find positive cases during this proactive testing.

The colleagues and kids who were recently been in the pre-schools at the same time as the positive cases are given a 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA) as a precautionary measure.

Only a small number of students and teachers are affected as pre-schools are only offering limited services during the circuit breaker period.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) is currently doing contact tracing and close contacts will be served a quarantine order (QO).

It’s Not The Staff’s Fault

Every time we hear about a staff who continued going to work and tested positive for the coronavirus, we’ll wonder:

Did they go to work despite knowing how dangerous the situation is?!

ECDA is asking for the public’s understanding of the affected pre-schools and the teachers.

Because some Covid-19 cases can show little to no symptoms of the virus, even the infected themselves might not be aware that they’re carrying it.

They also explained that just like many Singaporeans, pre-school teachers take pride in their work and worry that their being on medical leave will inconvenience their colleagues.

Parents, too, who are busy with work, might simply send their kids to school even though they have mild symptoms.

Be Responsible

During this crucial time, they ask for all teachers, parents and students to be responsible and seek medical help, even for mild symptoms.

This way, when pre-schools reopen on 2 June, it’ll be safe for everyone.

This isn’t just for pre-schools, by the way. Every one of us in Singapore should be the same.
