Stepping up prevention efforts at the border

We are seeing a rise in Covid-19 cases due to Singapore opening its borders for essential travels.

This also means authorities are also stepping up testing and surveillance efforts at the border, so they can filter out the virus right away.

In the meantime, residents in the community should continue to practise good hygiene and safe distancing.
