Continue to be socially responsible in a Covid-19 era

As Singapore has gone over a week without local cases, residents are able to go about their daily lives knowing the pandemic is under control here.

However, this doesn’t mean that it’s time to be complacent.

Most of us aren’t vaccinated yet, and until then, we should continue to be socially responsible. Do remember to practise good hygiene and safe distancing when you’re out.

And more importantly, seek medical attention promptly when you have respiratory symptoms like sore throat, fever, and cough.
