The Sungei Tengah Lodge residents enjoyed the Christmas festivities. The atmosphere was heightened by the Christmas decorations. This year, there was special effort by management staff to build our very own Christmas tree right at front entrance and its imaginative and impressive as commented by residents. The individual clusters have put up their respective decorations. It is an auspicious end to the year 2019 and time for reflection on work and family.
On 15 December 2019, a Christmas funfair and carolling were held and residents had a merry time with some even singing and humming along. The residents participated in the games and activities. Light and simple refreshments were served to participants. Such activities were welcomed by residents and helps to reduce the monotony of dormitory living. The residents can interact with others and share a laugh and a smile to add to the cheers and merriment.
On 11 January 2020, we welcome a team of volunteers from Parkway Medical Group arranged by The Salvation Army to conduct free health screening and provide medical advisory to our residents.
Many residents queue and take their turn to be attended by the medical team.
All the residents are foreign work permit holder and spent their working hour doing arduous site work under the sun and in difficult work environment. Being young and physical fit would normally mean they assume they are in good health with no underlying medical problem.
This medical health screening would help to keep check on their health and give them some assurance that are healthy and whether there is a need for referral to address any medical issue. As the saying goes “Prevention is better than Cure”.
We aim to promote wellness to all your foreign workers staying with us.
Chinese New Year official public holiday was on 25th and 26th January 2020 with the latter day falling on Sunday meaning Monday 27th January 2020 was declared as an extended public holiday. Everyone enjoys the super long weekend holiday period. Dormitory was busier and many residents enjoyed the respite from work. The CNY decorations at the clusters added to the festivity’s mood.

On 30 January 2020, the WHO declared the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak, a public health emergency of international concern.
TG25 as dormitory operator has step-up our preventive and precautionary measures including working closely with MOM and MOH to implement a series of measures to reduce the risk of imported cases and community transmission of the COVID-19.
All our returning residents with recent travel history to Mainland China were placed on 14 days leave of absence (LOA), whereby they were isolated and placed in a designated separation room (with WIFI, bathroom facilities) away from other room- mates to avoid social contact. We monitor their health closely, and ask these residents to immediately inform our Operations team if they felt unwell or if they develop any fever or symptoms of acute respiratory illness such as cough or shortness of breath. Masks were regularly issued. Temperature taking was carried out twice per day and the rooms were regularly cleaned with disinfectant. TG25 also assisted to provide the affected workers with 3 meals per day to avoid coming into close and sustained proximity with others.
The following additional measures were implemented:
1) Carry out temperature screening for all other residents, staffs and visitors
2) Ensure that the rooms were ventilated and the toilets were adequately equipped with facilities for hand washing
3) Placing bottle of hand sanitizer in all lift cabins and on the security – reception counters
4) Increase the frequency of cleaning in commonly used areas
5) Residents were regularly advised to wear a mask and seek medical attention promptly if they feel unwell or present with fever or respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, runny nose).
6) Health advisory posters were put up along the linkways, carparks, security counter reception area, lifts, dining area and free WIFI accessible public area of the premises
In addition, seminars and briefings were conducted for the residents to allay their fear and anxieties, and create awareness to adopt and observe good personal hygiene practices at all times.
