As part of government's measures in response to the novel coronavirus pneumonia development, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has implemented temperature screening at all sea checkpoints, including ferry and cruise terminals, PSA Terminals and Jurong Port, for inbound travellers from 24 January 2020, 1200 hours onwards.

Travellers and ship crew arriving at sea checkpoints will undergo temperature screening conducted by onsite healthcare assistants. Suspect cases will be referred to the hospitals for further assessment.

MPA has put up health advisories at the sea checkpoints to advise travellers and ship crew on the precautionary measures to take when travelling, as well as to remain vigilant and adopt good hygiene practices at all times.
