Here’s a list of their enhanced initiatives:

  • 11 thermal scanners are stationed resort-wide for efficient screening of guests at entry points. Employees and staff undergo temperature screening twice-daily.
  • Guests can have easy access to 270 hand sanitisers resort-wide.
  • 1m separation from others in dining areas, queue lines and others for safe distancing measures. Seating at staff dining areas is up to 2-metres apart.
  • Increased sanitisation, cleaning, and disinfection of guest areas by up to 700%.
  • Mandatory travel declarations from guests and employees.
  • Promotion of TraceTogether mobile app to guests for improved contact-tracing.
  • Reduction of face-to-face meetings among staff.

Practice good personal hygiene

RWS also encouraged guests to follow the Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines to stay safe.

Like most of us, they are encouraged to wash hands regularly and avoid touching their face.

Those with fever, runny nose and cough must wear a mask. If they feel unwell, then they are encouraged to approach staff to seek medical attention.

Frontline employees also have access to masks and can provide masks to guests that need them. The staff is also advised to monitor their health.

Once they feel unwell, they must seek out a doctor and not report for work.

Stay safe everyone

RWS is among many other venues who’ve had to implement closures in light of MOH’s latest sanctions.

While some of us may find these measures drastic and disruptive, remember that this is only a temporary phase.

As soon as the Covid-19 outbreak ends, we can hang out with friends, visit a variety of places, and return to our normal routine.
