Stay vigilant, especially when dining in

As Singapore cautiously reopens during Phase 3 Heightened Alert, many look forward to the opportunity to dine in at restaurants again.

However, we mustn’t forget that threat of Covid-19 remains high in our community.

Everyone has a part to play in curbing transmission risks, and we can do this by wearing masks, maintaining a safe distance from others, and practising safe hygiene.

Most importantly, remember to book your vaccination when you have the chance.
