Have hope we’ll be out of the woods soon
Singapore will return to Phase 2 Heightened Alert from tomorrow (22 Jul). This means that we can’t dine in for a while. Social gathering group sizes are also back to a maximum of 2 people.
The latest developments are understandably disappointing to many, but it’s crucial to do our part so that Singapore will be out of the woods soon.
Let’s remain vigilant, abide by Covid-19 rules, and practise good personal hygiene to curb the spread. And more importantly, book your vaccination appointment soon.
