Many clusters in Singapore can be traced to someone with symptoms attending a gathering although ill. Let’s all practise social responsibility and good hygiene to keep COVID-19 at bay! 👌

Good habits and social norms to practise

  • Keep premises clean and pest-free
  • Return trays, keep tables clean
  • Keep toilets clean and dry
  • Wash hands regularly with soap
  • Take temperature, see doctor if unwell, stay at home
  • Use tissue when sneezing or coughing
  • Bin litter and soiled tissue
  • Eat on tray to prevent spills onto tables so cleaners don’t have to pick food up and risk spreading diseases
  • Don’t double dip in common bowls
  • Refrain from shaking hands
