[SINGAPORE] New measures from 7 April 2020

by CNRS@ASEAN - published on

Circuit breaker measures are being put in place by the Singapore government for one month until 4 May.

Access to non-essential workplaces is suspended for one month. These include institutions of higher learning and schools. Telecommuting measures must therefore be in place to compensate for the suspension of such access.
Only workplaces in essential economic sectors (transport, health, hygiene, telecommunications) can remain open: supermarkets, pharmacies, hospitals, opticians, take-away catering, hairdressers, transport and telecommunications).

It is still recommended to adopt the right hygiene measures and to respect safe distancing measures.

It is now advisable to wear a mask when going out, to help protect others.
