Signs for COVID-19 related words in Singapore Sign Language

In view of the Covid-19 situation, it is important to ensure that Deaf people who are sign language users receive information in a timely and accurate manner. Because of the coronavirus crisis, many words and phrases which are new to the general public, including the Deaf community, have now become familiar to all of us. However, some of these words and phrases do not have formal or widely used signs yet, so SADeaf is pleased to present some suggestions on how these can be signed. 

This initiative was headed by SADeaf’s Sign Language Instructors sub-committee and Deaf Access Service department.
