Considering the Covid-19 situation as of now, the event is scheduled to proceed as planned.

The health and well-being of our participants, spectators and volunteers, and ensuring the safe delivery of the event are our upmost priorities. We will keep monitoring the situation and following the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and Singapore’s and Indonesia’s Ministries of Health.

  1. Temperature check of all visitors at the BBT Ferry Terminal
  2. Temperature check at Post 1 (Simpang Lagoi) of all passengers’ on-board buses
  3. Quarantine staff have been deployed at the above two mentioned entry points to perform the required interview and screening test
  4. Designated temporary isolation rooms/tents have also been setup at BBT and Post 1.
  5. All hotels within Bintan Resorts must provide an isolation room to temporarily hold any suspected case(s)
  6. All frontline staff within Bintan Resorts and at hotels that regularly have contact or close exposure with guests must carry out daily temperature checks prior to commencing work and at the end of their shift, whichis recorded.
  7. All frontline staff within Bintan Resorts and at the hotels must wear a suitable protective surgical mask.

Any additional precautionary measures specific to the event will be communicated to you closer to the race weekend.

We will update you should there be any new developments.

In the meantime, keep training, and stay outdoors!

On this note, keep in mind that according to health scientists, viruses such as the Covid-19 don’t persist very well under hot and humid conditions and that “in an open space, you won’t catch the virus from a passing person”. More reading here:
