IMAS Advisory on 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19)


Following the raising of the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) Alert Level from Yellow to Orange, IMAS will be deferring our large-scale events scheduled in 1H2020 to a later date, potentially in 3Q2020. We will keep you posted on the new dates.

These events are:

  1. IMAS 7th Regulatory & Legal Roundup Forum (originally scheduled for 21 Feb),
  2. IMAS Digital Accelerator Programme (DAP) Showcase 2020 (originally scheduled for 26 Mar), and
  3. IMAS and Bloomberg Investment Conference 2020 (originally scheduled for 29 Apr)

Safeguarding the well-being of our guests and speakers is of paramount importance to us. As we monitor the evolving coronavirus situation, we are also reviewing the format of our lunchtime talks and events and are exploring alternative formats such as pre-recorded webinars or live webcasts. Please stay tuned for more details.

We strongly encourage members to take guidance from the workplace measures recommended by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) as part of your business continuity plans[1]. We also remind our Regular Members to adopt the additional measures and precautions as set out in the advisory recently issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)[2]. 

We hope everyone will keep safe and stay healthy. If the IMAS Secretariat can be of help or support in any way during these trying times, please do not hesitate to reach us at 6223-9353 or enquiries@imas.org.sg.  

Thank you.
