We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.

We cannot elaborate on the admission fee as the fees depends on the type of hospital your workers are going to admit to. You may contact the nearest government admitting hospital for inquiry.

Here, I include the link to list of screening and admitting hospitals (Designated Hospital for COVID-19)

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link DoctorOnCall Tanya.
