Tomorrow is the start of the semi lockdown in Singapore due to COVID-19. Actually, it is not really a lockdown because we are still allowed to go out and exercise in parks. We can still go out and get food and groceries. Only offices, schools and shopping malls/entertainment areas/non-essential services are closed for a month. Everyone has to work from home for a month and practise social distancing.
We are not required to wear masks to go out but we are also not discouraged from wearing masks. We are discouraged from gatherings or eating out but we still can buy our bubble teas. Yes, bubble tea is an essential service in Singapore. Haha, probably part of the F&B category. Of course, public transport is still operational as there are folks who still have to go to work as they are part of the essential services category.
To all Singapore residents, please stay at home as much as possible and stay far away from everyone else when you see them. Let’s do our part and not overwhelm our healthcare systems.
To the rest of the world, please stay at home too. Don’t overwhelm your healthcare systems.
