Only 1 New Covid-19 Case In S’pore On 2 Nov, Lowest Daily Tally Since The Outbreak

Singapore Confirms 1 New Covid-19 Case On 2 Nov

The Ministry of Health (MOH) reported 1 new Covid-19 case in Singapore today (2 Nov).

The case is imported, an individual serving their Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

This marks the 3rd consecutive day that Singapore has gone without local transmissions.

SHN at dedicated facilities no longer free from 2021

As Singapore opens up our borders to more countries, authorities are adjusting measures for incoming travellers.

While many still need to serve a 14-day quarantine at SHN facilities, those from the following locations can opt out, and do so at their places of residence:

  • Estonia
  • Fiji
  • Finland
  • Japan
  • Norway
  • Republic of Korea
  • Sri Lanka
  • Thailand
  • Turkey

From Jan 2021, however, travellers or locals returning from countries that require SHNs at dedicated facilities will have to cover the costs on their own.

They’ll also have to pay for any Covid-19 medical bills they may incur.

Gradual switch to TraceTogether for contact tracing

Though contact tracing efforts have been efficient, authorities are stepping up measures as more activities resume.

Popular public places are beginning to implement TraceTogether-only check-ins, doing away with the previous SingPass, IC or phone QR code scanners.

Singapore residents should thus download the app or get their tokens soon, so they can check in safely.

Those who intend to collect the tokens should note that CCs are distributing only from specific dates, so check your nearest ones here.

Hope for number of Covid-19 cases will remain low

With consecutive days of zero community cases, we hope that Singapore will be able to keep up this record for a while.

After all, we’re hopefully welcoming Phase 3 soon, and a low number of local transmissions will be the motivation we need to do so safely.

We’ve come a long way to get here, so let’s continue being responsible citizens and doing our parts to curb the spread of the virus.

We’ll pull through this together in due time.
