Stay home & keep safe
As Singapore inches towards the end of Phase 2 Heightened Alert, it’s certainly promising to see lower community cases being reported in the last few days.
Until then, let’s do our part and stay home as much as possible.
Even if you have to go out, wear your mask properly, keep a safe distance from others, and practise good hygiene.
