Advisory for dormitory operators on TraceTogether SMS notification for persons tested positive for COVID-19

Issued on 23 June 2020

  1. We would like to alert dormitory operators to the SMS alert feature of TraceTogether (TT).
  2. TT is an app that helps to identify contacts who have been in close proximity with a confirmed case during the infectious period, so that the Ministry of Health (MOH) can quickly follow up with the necessary public health action such as quarantine of close contacts.
  3. TT users who are tested COVID-19 positive will be notified via SMS on their health status and to upload their TT records.
  4. Dormitory operators are advised that should a worker inform the operator that he has been notified via TT on his COVID-19 status, dormitory operators should take the usual precautions of advising the worker to wear a mask and isolate him. Dormitory operators should also continue to inform FAST.
