We would like to provide you with the latest updates further to our 7 April 2020 communication on COVID-19.
The Estate activated our Level 2 plans after the Yangon Regional Government (YRG) heightened safe-distancing measures as a result of increasing number of COVID-10 positive cases. To pre-empt escalating infections, the YRG reduced movements and interactions in public and private places particularly during the Thingyan holidays.
Please be assured that the Estate Management team is in constant contact with the Ministry of Health & Sports. The Ministry will notify us should a patient living at the Estate be tested positive for COVID-19, and we will duly inform you and all our staff members to ensure your health and safety. Our priority continues to be the safety of our residents and staff.
To recap, the following are guidelines from YRG:
Within the Estate:
You may move around while maintaining physical distancing. We do, however, recommend movement only for essential services and exercise.
Outside the Estate:
Should you require to go out of the Estate, you should only do so for the following reasons:
Healthcare: To go to the hospital or to a clinic for urgent medical needs;
Food: To buy daily necessities.
