Recover Safely at Home

    After being tested positive for COVID-19, a Home Recovery Buddy from MOH will contact you to onboard you onto the HRP.

     

    It is highly recommended for you to monitor your health vitals (temperature, pulse rate and oxygen saturation rate) diligently every day.

     

    If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 995. Symptoms that may warrant a call for help include chest pain and shortness of breath. For non-medical assistance, you may reach out to the Home Recovery Buddy Hotline (6874 4939).
