Don’t need to rush to use services that just opened due to eased CB measures

As most of you know, the government has eased some CB measures as the situation in Singapore improves.

However, Minister Lawrence Wong has warned that this should not be taken as an opportunity to go out more often.

People also do not need to rush to cut hair, for example, once barbershops open. You will have many opportunities to do so in the future.

Widespread testing for those in nursing homes

Over the next few weeks, Singapore is going to test about 16,000 across 80 resident homes in Singapore for COVID-19. This is because the elderly are more susceptible to the disease and hence, more precaution must be taken to protect them.

Testing for 9,000 employees in nursing homes have already been completed, with 1 staff tested positive. Those in close contact with the staff have already been tested negative.
