Safeguard public health together as a nation
Singapore is having an increased number of community cases in the last few days. This means that more public places may have been visited by patients during their most infectious period as well.
We can’t stress enough the importance of practising good hygiene and safe distancing. So do remember to adhere to Covid-19 safety rules when you’re outdoors.
Everyone has a role to play in safeguarding public health together.
