Follow Covid-19 rules & remain vigilant
Singapore’s Covid-19 case numbers are seeing a rising trend again after the detection of clusters at Bugis Junction, dormitories, and bus interchanges.
Even though we have one of the highest vaccination rates globally, we mustn’t let our guard down. History has taught us that it only takes a brief moment of complacency for cases to spread like wildfire again.
Now that we are free to head out and dine in again let’s remain vigilant. Follow Covid-19 rules, and practise good personal hygiene.
More importantly, seek medical attention right away when you’re not feeling well.
