10 February 2020
The COVID-19 virus situation in Singapore continues to evolve. Members will no doubt be aware that, on 7 February 2020, the Government raised the DORSCON alert level to Orange and issued further advice for dealing with the current situation.
Amongst other things, the Government has advised organisers of non-essential large events to cancel or defer them. In light of this advice, SIArb has taken the decision to postpone this month’s CPD seminar (Developments in Singapore Arbitration, with Professor Lawrence Boo and Ms Christine Artero, scheduled for 12 February). Members and others who had registered for the seminar will receive a separate notice of postponement. We will seek to reschedule the seminar at a later date once the risk from the coronavirus has subsided.
SIArb will keep the situation under review and monitor further advice from the Government. If it becomes necessary to take further appropriate actions, including postponing or cancelling further events, we will inform members by email and on our website.
The well-being and safety of our members is our paramount consideration. We urge all members to adhere to the health and travel advisories issued by the Government. Please take care of yourselves.
