On 7 February 2020, the Ministry of Health (MOH) raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition or DORSCON from Yellow to Orange. The MOH has also additional control measures to prevent the risk of further transmission of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the community.
As a result of the additional control measures, we have received some queries as to how data protection and employment laws apply in relation to the collection of personal data from visitors and employees.

To address some of the more common issues, we have prepared a set of FAQs to clarify how the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 and employment law may be applicable.
