  • 1 Special Pass holder who is part of the crew of a ship that arrived from the Philippines.

Hopeful for Phase 3’s arrival

We are just one day shy of a 14-day period with zero local cases. This gives us hope that the country may transition into Phase 3 by end of the year as expected.

In the meantime, let’s continue to practise good hygiene and safe distancing, as zero local cases does not mean zero transmission risk.

Oh, and do remember to start using the TraceTogether app or collect the token.
