Precautionary Measures

For Visitors to SUSS Campus

  1. Step 1

    Temperature Taking

    From Monday, 10 February 2020, all visitors (including students, teaching associates   contractors) must report and have their temperatures taken at any of the following stations:

    temp_screening_blk_a_l1_plaza

    temp_screening_blk_c_l1_canopy

    temp_screening_blk_a_l2_atrium

    • Only those without COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or other respiratory symptoms, will be issued a sticker to be displayed prominently on the left side of the chest at all times while on campus*.

    • Verbal/Visual Screening
      • Those who display COVID-19 symptoms such as cough, sore throat or other respiratory symptoms, will be asked to leave campus immediately.
      • We urge those with similar symptoms to act responsibly and NOT come to campus if feeling unwell.

    *Our service and F&B staff reserve the right not to engage with individuals without a valid temperature screening sticker and who do not comply with the directive.

    Step 2

    Location-Based Temperature Recording

    With effect from 17 February 2020, all visitors are required to submit temperature readings at their respective meeting locations on campus via a location-specific QR code or URL to facilitate contact tracing.

    This is an additional requirement besides the current mandatory to travel declaration which you are required to make at our temperature screening stations upon arrival.

    Before entering the room for meetings please ensure:

    • You have completed your travel declaration & taken your temperature at the temperature screening stations
    • Use the listed QR codes prominently outside each seminar/meeting room. You can also manually access the listed URL to submit:
      • Name
      • Mobile number
      • the most recent temperature readings taken

    If you are attending meetings at more than one location, you must submit the above information at every subsequent meeting location.

    If you are at our campus for more than 5 hours, you are required to re-take your temperature at any of the designated temperature screening stations.

    Step 3

    Travel Declarations by Visitors

    To facilitate any need for contact tracing, all visitors are required to also submit a travel declaration at the temperature screening station areas. They can also fill in the form prior to their visit.
