Singapore, 11 February 2020 -- PPP Coffee (“the company”) has been closely monitoring the news and official updates issued by the Ministry of Health (MOH) in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus (“2019-nCoV”) infection. Following the DORSCON orange alert issued by MOH on 7 February 2020, we will be stepping up our precautionary measures and implementing the following initiatives across our operations in Singapore.

Travel Declaration

All full-time and part-time employees across the company will be required to fill up a Travel Declaration Form declaring their travel history and future plans to all countries. As of 7 February 2020, none of our employees has travelled to China in the last 14 days, or has any immediate contact with any persons on Home Quarantine Order (HQO).

Daily Temperature Checking

Employees will be required to record their temperature twice daily – in the morning when they report to work, and in the afternoon no later than 2pm. Employees who are unwell, or displaying flu-like symptoms with temperature exceeding 37.5°C, will be sent home and be required to seek immediate medical attention.

Public Events

All large-scale events will be temporarily suspended until further notice. This includes the regular BREW by Darker Than Wax, and The Analog Assembly to be held at Chye Seng Huat Hardware. 

Corporate/Lifestyle Workshops

All workshops will continue to run as per usual at the respective venues. However, the company will be taking additional precautionary measures such mandatory travel declarations and temperature checks to ensure the wellbeing of other employees and students. Participants who have registered for the workshops will be offered a full refund if they choose to cancel and/or withdraw from the scheduled workshop three (3) working days in advance.

Cafe/Retail Outlets

All cafes and retail outlets by PPP Coffee in Singapore will continue to operate as per usual. Employees are reminded daily to maintain and observe high standards of sanitation and personal hygiene. In addition, we have introduced steps to ensure that all common areas are sanitised every 3 hours from  opening till closing. Tables, chairs and serving trays will also be wiped and sanitised after every use.

To manage the lunch hour crowd at the respective venues, we will also be looking to work more closely with food delivery partners. In addition, we will be offering free islandwide delivery with minimum order of S$10 made through our online store from 13 February 2020 to 31 March 2020. Terms and Conditions apply.

Business Continuity Plan

PPP Coffee has developed a business continuity plan for all critical functions and services to ensure that we can continue to maintain our operations and service our clients. A flexible work-from-home, split-shift and split-site arrangement will be in place for our backend and frontline staff respectively.

PPP Coffee will continue to monitor the situation and heed the official advisories recommended by MOH and other government agencies.
