The Singapore Slingers regret to inform the public that the scheduled game against San Miguel Alab Pilipinas on Sunday, March 8, at the OCBC Arena, has been cancelled for precautionary measures.
Today, upon the Slingers’ return to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, recent signee Jameel McKay received word from the Ministry of Health that he was on the “contact list” as he was on the same flight from Turkey to Singapore with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.
McKay has been in Singapore for the past six days and has shown no symptoms of any illness.
However, it’s better to be on the side of caution when it comes to public safety and for this reason, the management of the Singapore Slingers, in consultation with the ASEAN Basketball League, has decided to cancel the game.
We apologize for all the inconvenience caused and implore everyone to take all the necessary precautions to avoid infection.
