Stay vigilant, especially if you’re heading back to office

With community cases remaining steadily low over the last few weeks, this gives us hope that Phase 3 will be here soon.

Growing complacent will only hinder the progress we’ve made thus far. So always stay vigilant, and practise good hygiene even as you head back to office starting today (28 Sep).
