COVID-19 – ASESG Preventive Measures

Current Assessment

In view of the heightened risk due to the cases of infection which may be spreading in the community, Singapore raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) Alert Level from Yellow to Orange on Feb 7.

ASESG has implemented a slew of precautionary measures to protect our employees, customers, vendors and external parties. This is to ensure adequate preparation for business continuity with the guidelines issued by Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
