Message by Pastor Anthony (8 Feb 2020)

Hi Everyone, AMKMC will be conducting temperature screenings and collecting contact details for contact tracing in view of the status of the DORSCON ORANGE status in Singapore. Please help us by being aware of the following points below. Please also help pass the word around to fellow CG mates and those you know from church.

1. If feeling unwell (fever, respiratory illness symptoms) or if your body temperature is 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher, please avoid church. Instead, see a doctor soonest possible as you likely have a fever.

2. If you have travelled to China in the last 14 days or suspect that you may have been in contact with someone infected but you have not exhibited symptoms, please exercise caution and quarantine yourself at home.

3. Come a little EARLIER to church to get your temperature checked and help us fill up the contact tracing form. Do be patient with each other as we expect some congestion.

4. Wash your hands regularly. Minimise contact with each other for this season but do greet (without shaking hands) and encourage each other in the Lord always.

5. Please FOLLOW the instructions of those taking temperature even if you don’t agree with it. Encourage them as they are serving at the front line in this screening exercise.

6. Stay informed of the news from legitimate news sources and keep this situation and each other in prayer.

7. Let us remain hopeful in the Lord and refrain from spreading rumours or unverified information regarding the 2019nCoV.

Thank you once again for your support and cooperation. Let’s work & serve together to keep our congregation members safe and healthy. See you all this weekend!

The ‘Disease Outbreak Response System Condition’ (DORSCON) is a colour-coded framework that shows you the current disease situation.


Updated as of 1 Feb 2020.

In view of the coronavirus outbreak that has been causing cases of severe pneumonia in China, we urge all members and friends to remain vigilant and to adopt good personal hygiene practices. Do seek medical attention promptly if you are feeling unwell.

Advisory specific to attending Church
  • If you have visited Mainland China within the last two weeks, please refrain from joining any church activities for a period of 14 days.
  • If you have developed a fever or are experiencing other respiratory symptoms such as breathlessness or coughing, you should seek immediate medical attention and rest at home.
  • If you don’t have a fever but are feeling unwell, you may still attend church activities, but please wear a surgical mask and keep your hands clean at all times.
  • During this period, minimise physical contact, and practice heightened personal hygiene and social etiquette.
  • Hand sanitisers are available at the info counter outside Sanctuary 2.
