Stay safe & stay vigilant

Singaporeans are able to enjoy greater freedoms in recent months despite being in a Covid-19 world. But it doesn’t mean the community is entirely immune to transmission risks.

Community cases are reported every now and then, which means exercising social responsibility and caution is highly recommended.

So do take proper care when you’re heading out. Wear your mask properly, and practise safe distancing as much as you can.
