Chef Willin Low, 48, has just returned from working at his restaurant outpost Roketto in Niseko, Hokkaido, for the past month. The mod Sin chef also runs the Singapore-inspired pop-up izakaya of the same name at Frasers Tower in Singapore (by day, it's known as restaurant Relish and serves burgers and pastas). As with other citizens and permanent residents returning from recent trips overseas, he's required to serve a mandatory 14-day stay-home notice upon arrival in Singapore. This recent measure is in response to the growing number of citizens who had contracted the Covid-19 virus on their travels and brought it back to our island. What's a stay-home notice (SHN)? “Persons issued a SHN should remain in their place of residence at all times during the 14-day period,” states www.gov.sg. Those who fail to comply with the SHN may face penalties, “as you have put the well-being of the wider community at risk”. Such as being prosecuted under Section 21A of the Infectious Diseases Act where one can expect fines up to $10,000 for first offenders and $20,000 for subsequent offenders. Or/and, gulp — even time in jail.
