MPA: Singapore maritime sector adjusts SMM response to ‘DORSCON Yellow’ level

27 Apr 2022

The Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore on Tuesday (26 April) released a circular informing the shipping industry Safe Management Measures (SMMs) will be eased to reflect the current change of DORSCON level from Orange to Yellow:

DORSCON Yellow Precautionary Measures

This circular supersedes Port Marine Circular No. 04 of 2020.

On 22 Apr 2022, the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) announced that the Disease  Outbreak  Response  System  Condition  (DORSCON)  level  will  be  adjusted down from Orange to Yellow (https://www.moh.gov.sg/news-highlights/details/further-easing-of-community-and-border-measures/).

The DORSCON framework gives an indication of the current disease situation. The local situation has been improving, with daily cases falling and stabilising, and the impact of the disease has been mitigated by high vaccination rates.

Safe Management Measures (SMMs) will be eased from 26 Apr 2022 to reflect the current posture. 

MPA urges everyone to remain vigilant and exercise social responsibility as the situation can change quickly in the face of new variants. Individuals must continue to adhere to the prevailing SMMs and health advisories, and practice good personal hygiene.

Note: Port Marine Circular No. 04 of 2020 can be downloaded from the MPA website here.
