In light of the COVID-19 developments, the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Singapore has raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level to Orange.

In addition to adhering strictly to guidelines and procedures provided by MOH, KPMG in Singapore has taken additional measures to further enhance the safety and health of our clients and staff members, which remains our top priority.

1      All travel to China as well as countries, territories or areas outside of China affected by COVID-19 (in line with Public Health Travel Advisories), have been suspended until further notice. This includes both work and personal travel.

2      All staff are mandated to declare if they have been issued 5-day medical leave for acute respiratory symptoms, Quarantine Orders, travel plans and observe Stay-Home Notices and Leaves of Absence. 

3      All staff are mandated to declare if any family member(s) is/are serving Quarantine Order(s) or Stay-At-Home (SHN) notice(s).

4      Alternate work arrangements have been established such that:

  • Staff of KPMG in Singapore working at clients’ premises (where determined to be necessary) will observe clients’ work arrangements and policies
  • All other staff of KPMG in Singapore, except essential roles that are required to be office-based, have been advised to work from home, and to only be at KPMG office premises on exceptional bases, with necessary approvals and precautions in place
  • Physical meetings have been replaced with video and audio-conferencing meetings, where practicable
  • All large-scale group events and activities have been suspended, with alternate arrangements put in place (e.g. webinars)

5      All guests and visitors to KPMG in Singapore premises will be subject to temperature screening and are required to complete health and travel declarations. There are designated isolation rooms for anyone who feels unwell whilst at KPMG in Singapore premises.

6      KPMG in Singapore premises are disinfected regularly, and staff are encouraged to practise good hygiene and socially-responsible behaviors by:

  • Adhering to the safe-distancing measures put in place at KPMG in Singapore premises
  • Monitoring their temperature twice a day
  • Washing their hands regularly with soap
  • Avoiding the touching of their faces with their hands
  • Covering their mouths with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing
  • Wearing a mask if unwell and seeing a doctor promptly
  • Avoiding crowded places and staying at home if unwell

Please be assured that these measures are in place to keep our clients and staff members safe, while ensuring business continuity. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and enhance our measures as the situation warrants.
