Don’t let your guard down, stay home as much as possible
3 weeks after Singapore entered the new Phase 2, we remain on heightened alert.
This means we must continue to take extra precautionary measures by staying home as much as possible and wearing masks with good filtration capacity.
Until Covid-19 is over, we shouldn’t let our guard down. Stay vigilant and abide by safety rules so that we can beat the pandemic for good.
