SOS Samudra: The Seacare Hotel

When Malaysia announced a lockdown of the country beginning from 18 March 2020, many employers scrambled to find accommodation for their Malaysian employees who will be affected by this lockdown. Recognising the urgency of the situation, Seacare Hotel took the initiative to approach employers and offered a solution, doing its part to support the fight against COVID-19.

Seacare Hotel is also offering relevant stay packages to workers in essential services who require accommodation that is tailored to their needs.

Furthermore, the hotel has taken the necessary steps to comply with the health and safety measures recommended by the Ministry of Health (MOH). For example, staff are required to take their temperature twice daily, while housekeeping staff are provided with masks and gloves to clean. Guests also have to fill in a health declaration and have their temperatures taken.

The hotel is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all guests and employees, and extra steps will be taken upon advice by MOH.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the hospitality industry has been one of the first to feel its impact. Hotels in Singapore are dependent on international travelers, which has slowed to a trickle with global travel coming to almost a complete halt. Nevertheless, The Seacare Hotel is doing its part to support the collective fight against COVID-19.

With the Malaysia lockdown in place starting 18 March 2020, employers were scrambling to find suitable accommodation to house their Malaysian workers in order to ensure that they have a temporary roof over their head in such uncertain times. Anticipating the employers’ urgent needs, The Seacare Hotel quickly approached employers to provide a solution to their accommodation problems.

The Seacare Hotel is also offering relevant stay packages to employees working in essential services, who require accommodation solution tailored to their needs during this period.

The hotel has taken steps to comply with health and safety measures recommended by the Ministry of Health.

These measures include:
• Conducting temperature checks for staff twice a day ie when they arrive for work and when they dismiss from work.
• Compulsory temperature checks and Health Declaration for all guests.
• Requirement for housekeeping staff to put on face masks and gloves when cleaning guest rooms.
• Making available face masks, hand sanitisers and thermometers for guests and employees upon request.
• Increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfection of public areas and within the hotel.

Extra steps will be taken depending on the severity of the situation or upon advice by the Ministry of Health.
