Ring in the new year responsibly
Restaurants and entertainment outlets have landed themselves in hot water when they allowed large groups to congregate with little to no social distancing.
The onus is also on Singapore residents to abide by the rules and understand the importance of social responsibility.
As we prepare to ring in the new year in Phase 3, let’s ensure that our festivities are still according to new Covid-19 safety measures.
Remember to keep to 8 in a group, have not more than 8 visitors over to your home, and wear your masks whenever you’re outdoors.
