Seek medical attention if you have symptoms

Having new community cases and Covid-19 clusters form in Singapore society recently is definitely a huge cause for concern.

This goes to show that we should always remain vigilant in our everyday life, and adhere to Covid-19 rules so that we don’t put others at risk.

If you suffer from respiratory symptoms – even mild ones – do visit a doctor ASAP. Stay home to recuperate instead of going to work.
