Advisory on COVID-19

25 March 2020

The well-being and safety of the NAFA community is the academy’s top priority. In the best interests of our staff and students, NAFA has put in place precautionary measures to safeguard our community against the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures are aligned to the guidelines set by Singapore’s Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will evaluate and refine the precautionary measures as the situation evolves. Let’s stay vigilant and play our part in being socially responsible while practicing good personal hygiene.

All staff and students are required to follow advisories issued by the academy. We have conducted travel declaration exercises for all students and staff; and advised students and staff to defer all travel abroad. Overseas study trips have been cancelled or postponed, while student activities and CCAs are suspended till further notice.

Stay-Home Notice (SHN)
Do note that all Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long-Term Pass holders returning to Singapore will be issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

In addition to the current SHN parameters and requirements, all staff and students who returned from overseas between 14 and 20 March 2020 will be placed on a mandatory 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA) from the date of return.
