Protecting ourselves and others

Singapore may return to Heightened Alert or even ‘Circuit Breaker’ status if the number of severe cases continue to rise.

Losing the freedoms that we have now would undoubtedly be devastating to many.

Therefore, for the next 2 weeks, we’ll have to limit our social gatherings and ensure that we keep to all safe management measures.

Otherwise, we risk losing it all.
