Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
MP For Sembawang GRC
To ask the Minister for Health to date, what is the number of appeals received for waiver of quarantine requirements by Singaporeans, permanent residents and Employment Pass holders who are already vaccinated against COVID-19 respectively.
We currently do not waive quarantine measures on the basis of vaccination and there is no formal appeal process to do so.
Vaccinated individuals have a lower risk of getting infected. However, if infected, they can still transmit the disease to others in the community, especially to unvaccinated individuals.
Therefore, all persons in close contact with COVID-19 cases are required to be quarantined regardless of vaccination status, until we reach higher vaccination coverage levels in our community.
