After a month of holidays, schools in Singapore are set to re-open tomorrow. But some of my foreign students who are returning from other areas with evidence of community transmission of Influenza A (H1N1) were advised to stay home by their schools.
I have placed those students on self-quarantine, hoping to limit the spread of Influenza A (H1N1) in the community.
They will stay at home throughout the 7 days quarantine period. I will monitor their temperature twice daily and check for flu-like symptoms. They must practice good personal hygiene and minimise contact with other house mates. They will have online lessons until they return to school on 6 July.
I don't know whether they are carriers of the virus. We just have to be socially responsible. I have prepared masks and hand sanitizers for every one in the house.
On 28th June 2009, Singapore has confirmed 145 new cases of H1N1, bringing the tally to 599.
