Home Recovery Programme – What to expect if you test positive for COVID-19 in Singapore

Living with COVID-19 in Singapore

So you’ve tested positive for COVID-19. What do you do next?

In Singapore, Home Recovery Programme (HRP) is the default care arrangement for everyone who tests positive for COVID-19, except for:

  • Partially or unvaccinated persons aged 50 years & older;
  • Vaccinated persons aged 80 years & older;
  • Children aged less than 3 months old;
  • Children aged 3 months to less than 3 years old assessed to be clinically unsuitable for home recovery

If you fall into one of the aforementioned categories, you will receive a call from Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) to schedule your transfer to an appropriate care facility.
