Chairperson/ Secretary/ Council Members


Dear Sir/Madam

EXERCISING IN COMMON AREAS OF STRATA-TITLED RESIDENTIAL
DEVELOPMENTS

1) We refer to the recent feedback on the provisions in the law under the COVID19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020 with regard to exercising in the common areas of strata-titled residential developments. Many
condominium residents and pet owners had written in to share with us their concerns
over the law which was already in force since 8 April 2020. We have taken into
consideration the views and brought up the feedback with the relevant authorities.

2) From 5 May 2020, residents living in private residential developments may
exercise, which includes walking (with or without pets), in the common areas of the
developments. Residents must continue to practise safe distancing measures at
common property of the developments. However, all sports and recreational facilities
should remain closed. Our officers will continue to conduct checks on condominiums
to ensure that all circuit breaker measures are adhered to.

3) As we continue the fight against COVID-19, residents, Management
Corporations and Managing Agents should work together and comply with all safe
distancing measures, regardless of the size of your development.

No exercising, dog walking within condominiums' common areas: BCA

Tuesday, April 28, 2020

No exercising, dog walking within condominiums' common areas: BCA

Exercising and dog walking are not permitted within the common areas of condominiums as part of measures to help curb the spread of COVID-19, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) said on Tuesday (Apr 28).

Singapore is currently undergoing a "circuit breaker" period to help prevent further spread of the coronavirus. People are urged to stay home as much as possible, although they can go out for essential activities and exercise.

In response to CNA's queries, the BCA said residents may exercise or walk their dogs in public areas that are freely accessible, but not in condominiums' common areas.

"These public areas could be any public path, a green or an open space that is managed or maintained for the Government or a public body, and is accessible to the general public without payment of any fee," the authority said.

It noted that many strata-titled developments, including private condominiums, have common areas within their gated compounds with facilities such as gardens, playgrounds and pools and other open spaces and paths.

"However, it can get crowded in these spaces, and there is difficulty in enforcing safe distancing," it said.  

"Hence, all the sports or recreational facilities within strata-titled developments are required to be closed during this period and residents are not permitted to exercise in the common areas." 

The BCA said it hopes "everyone understands the need" for the measures and will "do their part to comply with the requirements, in order to curb the spread of COVID-19".

CONDOMINIUM RESIDENTS FINED FOR FLOUTING COVID-19 CONTROL ORDER REGULATIONS

Monday, April 20, 2020

MEDIA RELEASE


CONDOMINIUM RESIDENTS FINED FOR FLOUTING COVID-19 CONTROL ORDER REGULATIONS


20 April 2020, Singapore – Since the implementation of elevated safe distancing measures on 7 April 2020, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has conducted checks on over 230 strata-titled residential developments. BCA has so far issued composition fines to one Management Corporation (MCST) and four condominium residents for flouting the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020.


2 In order to reduce movement and interactions in common spaces and minimise contact between individuals from different households, all common facilities in strata-titled residential developments, such as condominiums, must be closed. Residents should ensure that there are no visitors to their homes for social purposes, and should not conduct social gatherings within the estates. If residents need to leave home for valid reasons, they must wear a mask even if they are within the compounds of their estates.


3 Three of the non-compliance cases involved a resident from a condominium at Irrawaddy Road who had used the pool, another resident of a condominium at Flora Road who had brought her children to play by the pool, as well as a resident of a condominium at Sims Drive who was found not wearing a mask at the main entrance.


4 The remaining cases took place at a condominium at Amber Road, where the MCST was found to have failed to close all its common facilities. One of its residents was also found using the common gym.


5 The MCST was issued a composition fine of $1,000, while the condominium residents were each fined $300.

Elevated safe distancing measures


6 BCA urges MCSTs and managing agents (MAs) to step up efforts in reminding residents the importance of complying with the elevated safe distancing measures in controlling the spread of COVID-19. Residents should support and cooperate with MCSTs and MAs, and observe the measures put in place by the MCSTs. They can report non-compliances to the MCST and/or MAs for appropriate actions to be taken.
Reporting non-compliances

7 BCA has been receiving feedback on non-compliance1 with the elevated safe distancing measures, and proper information (e.g. location, date and time, and photographic evidence) provided has aided BCA in carrying out further investigation on such feedback.


8 BCA’s Enforcement Officers will continue to conduct random checks on strata-titled residential developments during the circuit breaker period to ensure that the elevated safe distancing measures are complied with.

[14th April 2020] CONTINUED STRINGENT IMPLEMENTATION & ENFORCEMENT OF CIRCUIT BREAKER MEASURES

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

CONTINUED STRINGENT IMPLEMENTATION & ENFORCEMENT OF CIRCUIT BREAKER MEASURES

 

 14TH APR 2020

1.     The Multi-Ministry Taskforce has introduced stringent measures as part of a nation-wide circuit breaker to break the chain of COVID-19 transmissions since 7 April 2020. The Taskforce will now make the wearing of masks mandatory for anyone leaving their home. Safe distancing measures for workplaces that continue to operate will also be enhanced.

Update on Circuit Breaker measures

2.     Since the start of the circuit breaker measures, Singaporeans have made significant efforts to stay home and reduce movements and interactions except for essential purposes. Public transport ridership and traffic volume have dropped by more than 70%. Similarly, close to 80% of the workforce are now working from home. There are visibly fewer people outside of their homes, with only an estimated 30% to 40% of individuals out and about on weekdays, and 20% to 30% on weekends.  

3.     Nearly 3,000 enforcement officers and ambassadors from over 30 agencies have been deployed daily to public spaces in HDB estates across the island, to ensure that safe distancing measures are observed. Crowd control measures were put in place to limit entry to popular parks and wet markets. At some of these hotspots, foot traffic has come down by up to 50%. Public spaces including stadiums, playgrounds, fitness corners, beaches, open fields and elderly activity corners have been cordoned off to prevent gatherings. Drones have also been deployed in selected parks and nature areas to monitor visitorship. Specific areas such as open lawns and park connectors were temporarily closed when crowds were high.

 

4.     Since 7 April 2020, more than 6,200 warnings and over 500 fines were issued to individuals who flouted the safe distancing measures. Strict enforcement will continue against individuals as well as essential service providers, owners or occupiers who flout the rules, putting others in danger. Composition offers of $300 for the first offence and $1000 for the second offence will be issued, and egregious cases will be prosecuted in court.

 

5.     Enforcement officers have observed greater compliance with safe distancing measures over the past week. However, there is no room for complacency. While the rise in number of cases daily can be largely attributed to foreign workers living in the dormitories, there are still cases arising from within the community, including at workplace premises. We must make this circuit breaker period count, and tighten where there are areas of risk.

 

Mask up when out

6.     The Multi-Ministry Taskforce updated its guidance on masks on 3 April 2020 based on the latest scientific advice. We have also completed the distribution of reusable masks to residents in Singapore.

 

7.     The Taskforce has now decided to take a further step and make it mandatory for all persons to wear a mask when leaving their homes. The general public is still advised to stay home and avoid going out. However, for those who need to go out for work or to purchase necessities, it is difficult to avoid contact completely, including with infected persons who may not show any symptoms. The wearing of masks is therefore an important precaution we can all take.

 

8.     Everyone must wear a mask when outside of their homes. This applies on public transport, taxis, private hire cars, walking to or at markets, and also for essential workers at all workplace premises, whether they are frontline staff (such as food handlers, cashiers and bus drivers) or performing back office functions (such as data entry personnel and payroll executives). Individuals may remove their mask while engaging in strenuous exercise outdoors (e.g. running/ jogging), but they must put it back on after completing exercise. Mask-wearing is not recommended for young children below the age of two for child safety reasons. Medical experts have also advised that some groups may have difficulties wearing a mask, including children with special needs and young children aged two and above, and we will exercise flexibility in enforcement for these groups.

 

9.     This requirement will be in effect during this circuit breaker period. First-time offenders will be issued composition offers of $300, and repeat offenders will face higher fines or prosecution in court for egregious cases. 

 

Enhanced measures for workplaces which remain open

10.     When we started the Circuit Breaker, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce was mindful not to disrupt supply chains and essential services needed for daily living.  We have also cleared many of the appeal cases over the past week, so that the key upstream suppliers to essential firms will not be impacted.  We will take a closer look to tighten the list of companies that are still operating. We aim to further reduce the number of workers that have to continue to go to work, so that more can stay at home, and we can minimise people movement.

 

11.     For workplace premises which remain open, cross-deployment or movement of workers across different workplace premises (e.g. different branches) will be disallowed. Employers and on-site managers must ensure that this is complied with, to avoid transmissions across workplace premises. There should also be no physical interactions between teams working in different locations. For essential service providers who need to move between different locations to perform their services (e.g. IT support, maintenance, logistics, community nurses making house visits), safe distancing measures must be complied to.

 

12.     Employers and on-site managers are also required to implement strict safe distancing measures within their premises, and for company-arranged transport, to reduce social interactions among workers during their course of work, as well as during their meal and break times. Employers and on-site managers should ensure that workers on-site are wearing masks.

 

13.     The Ministry of Manpower and other enforcement agencies will continue with inspections and take appropriate enforcement actions against non-compliant workplaces. First-time offences by essential service providers, owners or occupiers will be issued composition offers of $1000, and repeat offenders will face higher fines or prosecution in court for egregious cases. Essential service providers may be required to suspend their operations should any of their staff working on the premises become infected.

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Dear Sir/Madam


Compliance with COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations
2020 by Management Corporation (MCST) and Subsidiary Proprietors


1 Since 8 April 2020, the Government has implemented a series of enhanced
circuit breaker measures to reduce the risk of local transmission of the COVID-19.


2 During the control period until 4 May 2020 or such other date as may be
announced by the Government, all subsidiary proprietors are required to stay at
home at all times except for essential needs. There must be no visiting by family
or friends who do not stay within the same households for social purpose and
residents must not congregate at or use common facilities. Failure to comply
with all relevant requirements is an offence, and BCA will not hesitate to take
enforcement action against errant parties.


3 During this control period, MCSTs are expected to diligently monitor the
situation within their estates, and promptly provide feedback to BCA if any
contraventions of the requirements are noticed. Feedback to BCA should include all
relevant information pertaining to any contravention of the requirements, including
amongst others, photographs of subsidiary proprietors using common facilities and
reasons for visitors entering the developments.


4 All subsidiary proprietors and MCSTs are to do their part in the fight against
COVID-19.

SUSPENSION OF ACTIVITIES AT WORKPLACE PREMISES TO REDUCE COVID19 TRANSMISSION

Saturday, April 11, 2020

UPDATED AS OF 10 APRIL 2020


SUSPENSION OF ACTIVITIES AT WORKPLACE PREMISES TO REDUCE COVID19 TRANSMISSION – FAQS FOR MANAGEMENT CORPORATIONS (MCSTs) AND MANAGING AGENTS (MAs) Convening of Annual General Meeting (AGM)


Q1. How long can MCST defer the AGM?


A1. BCA is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will issue further
advisories where appropriate, including whether other modes may be used by MCSTs
to conduct their AGMs. MCSTs that defer holding their AGMs are to inform BCA in
writing at BMSMA_Info@bca.gov.sg.


Q2. Can MCST conduct AGM by electronic means rather than attend in
person?


A2. Under the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act, all SPs will need
to attend the AGMs in person. However, BCA is currently looking into amending the
provisions to allow the convening of general meetings by alternative arrangements
such as electronic means. More details will be shared later.


Q3. Can the Managing Council still proceed with council meetings with not
more than 10 persons?


A3. All MCSTs are advised to observe the enhanced safe distancing measures
issued by the Government to reduce the risk of local transmission of COVID-19.
MCSTs should conduct council meetings via electronic means. Guidelines on holding
a council meeting can be found in the Strata Management Guide:
https://www1.bca.gov.sg/regulatory-info/building-maintenance-and-stratamanagement/management-corporation-strata-title-mcst/strata-management-guides
Safe Distancing Measures


Q4. Should the MCST limit/suspend or cease operation of common facilities
amid the COVID-19 situation?


A4. All common facilities in strata-titled developments that are used for sports and
recreational purposes such as the swimming pool, playground, club house / function
room, tennis court, gym room, barbeque pits, roof top gardens etc must be closed
with effect from 7 April 2020. These are areas where crowds may congregate. The
closure of these areas is in line with the enhanced safe distancing measures
announced by the Government to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
The MCST should notify residents of the closure of common facilities. Walkways,
access paths, lifts and escalators, etc. which are necessary for movement remain
open, and safe distancing measures should be practised there.

Q5. Can residents exercise outdoors during the circuit breaker period?


A5. Those who wish to exercise outdoors are to ensure that they exercise on their
own or only with family members within their own household, and around the
immediate neighbourhood in open, uncrowded places. Safe distancing measures
must be observed at all times. For further info, please refer to the advisory on Sport
and Physical Exercise and Activities for the control period of 7 April 2020 to 4 May
2020 issued by Sport Singapore (SportSG).


Q7. Our MCST is not following the guidelines to close facilities that are used
for sports and recreation. What will BCA do?


A7. Please write to BCA at http://www.bca.gov.sg/feedbackform and we will follow
up with the MCST on your feedback.


Q8. Some residents are not following guidelines to maintain safe distancing
and are still gathering beside the pool, what can we do?


A8. Social gatherings of any size, in homes, or public spaces will no longer be
allowed under a proposed law that will grant the Government various powers to
combat the coronavirus outbreak.


Q9. Does the advisory to close common facilities also apply to non-strata
titled buildings?


A9. For non-strata titled buildings, building owners should refer to the prevailing
guidelines and advisories issued by MOH on closure of public facilities like gym and
swimming pools: https://www.moh.gov.sg/news-highlights/details/circuit-breaker-tominimise-further-spread-of-covid-19
Operation of preschools in MCST developments


Q10. Are preschool operators allowed to remain in operation within MCST
developments during the circuit breaker period?


A10. Preschools are deemed as ‘Essential Services’ that should continue during the
general closure of workplace premises to serve a limited group of parents/guardians
who are working in essential services. For more information, please refer to the
advisory issued by the at https://www.ecda.gov.sg/PressReleases/Pages/Advisory-toParents-Keeping-Our-Children-Safe-Against-COVID-19-Preschools-to-suspendgeneral-services.aspx.


Maintenance of Common Property


Q11. The MCST would still be maintaining the common facilities while they are
closed. However, some residents are asking if their monthly contribution to the
maintenance fees can be reduced as the common facilities are closed. What can
MCSTs do?


A11. The determining of the MCST fund has to be discussed in a general meeting.
We understand that MCSTs may not be able to hold an AGM during this period; as
such, BCA is looking into allowing MCSTs to convene general meetings by alternative
arrangements such as electronic means (refer to Q2). More details will be provided
when available.


Q12. Can MCSTs continue to maintain the swimming pools and water fountain
within the estate during this period?


A12. All swimming pools and water fountains are to be closed during the circuit
breaker period. Should the contractor engaged by the MCSTs be required to maintain
the water features during this period, the water treatment contractors shall ensure that
no more than 2 water treatment personnel are allowed to visit the site once every 2
weeks to conduct necessary water treatment. For more information, please refer to
NEA’s guidelines:

c) https://www.nea.gov.sg/our-services/pollution-control/water-quality/swimmingpools
Managing Agent Services as Essential Services


Q13. How many employees from the Managing Agent (“MA”) can be deployed
on site within a development?


A13. MAs will need to submit details of your operations at
https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg/essentialservices in order to continue operating.
Employees who report for work on site must be kept to a minimum. Safe distancing
practices must be in place, for employees who must work on site. For work that can
be done off site, such as backend operations, employees should telecommute.


Q14. How will MAs ensure that their service level to MCSTs is not affected by
the restrictions?


A14. MAs should ensure that essential services continue to be carried out in the
developments. The MA should advise the MCST on the types of essential services
required in the development and the service level or standard of performance
expected of the managing agent during this period.


Q15. There is ongoing renovation work carried out within a unit in the
development. Can the renovation works still proceed during this period?

A15. The renovation works should be wound down to a state where works may be
safely stopped by the time the suspension of work comes into effect on 7 April 2020,
0000 hours. Upon the suspension of work coming into force, no renovation works can
proceed until further notice is issued by the Government.
Other Essential Services


Q16. Are residents allowed to engage electricians and plumbers for emergency
repair works during the circuit breaker period?


A16. Yes. Residents may engage the following essential services for emergency
repair works. However, safe distancing measures must be observed at all times.
 • Air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems;
 • Fire protection systems;
 • Security and surveillance systems (such as CCTVs);
 • Electrical and plumbing works; and
 • Building management systems


All non-essential services, such as the routine servicing of air-conditioning units in
residential units and new installation of equipment must be suspended.


Q17. Are residents allowed to engage window contractors during the circuit
breaker period?


A17. Installation of windows in new projects or in premises that are under renovation
are not considered as essential services. These works are required to cease with
effect from 7 Apr 2020, 0000 hours to 4 May 2020, 2359 hours (both dates inclusive).
However, urgent window repair and replacement works (not limited to inspection,
removal of dislodged window panels, replacement of fasteners for casement windows,
replacement of friction stays for casement windows, installation of safety features for
sliding windows, and other necessary repair works to restore safety of the windows)
fall within the scope of essential services as set out in MTI’s Guidance. Safe distancing
measures must be observed at all times.

 

CIRCUIT BREAKER TO MINIMISE FURTHER SPREAD OF COVID-19

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

CIRCUIT BREAKER TO MINIMISE FURTHER SPREAD OF COVID-19

 

 3RD APR 2020

          The Multi-Ministry Taskforce will be implementing an elevated set of safe distancing measures, as a circuit breaker to pre-empt the trend of increasing local transmission of COVID-19. The aim is to reduce much more significantly movements and interactions in public and private places. To do this, we will move towards full home-based learning for our schools and close most physical workplace premises, save for those providing essential services and in selected economic sectors which are critical for our local and the global supply chains. Work and business activities that can be carried out via telecommuting from home should continue. 

2.            The Taskforce has reviewed the latest evidence and pattern of transmission of COVID-19 in Singapore. Most of the cases have arisen from persons coming into close contact with an infected individual in social, workplace and family settings. The Taskforce is very concerned by the increasing number of locally transmitted cases in the past week. It has concluded that we must make a decisive move at this point, to curb the spread of the infection. We require the cooperation of all Singaporeans to minimise movements and interactions in public and private places, and stay home unless necessary for essential purposes.

3.            These heightened safe distancing measures will be in place for four weeks (i.e. two incubation cycles) from 7 April 2020 until 4 May 2020 (inclusive). Entities that are able to comply immediately are strongly encouraged to do so. Current safe distancing measures on capacity limits and physical separation remain in force and must be strictly complied with, especially over the weekend.

 
Services that Remain Open to Support Daily Needs

4.            From 7 April 2020, all restaurants, hawker centres, coffeeshops, food courts and other food and beverage outlets will remain open only for takeaway or delivery. Food suppliers – including food and food ingredient production, food manufacturing, food processing, abattoirs/ slaughterhouses, food caterers, importers and traders, and food logistics, cold stores/ warehouses, food safety testing, supermarkets, convenience stores, grocery retailers, wholesale markets and wet markets – will remain open. The public can be assured of the continued availability of food items.


5.            Retail outlets that provide items and services necessary to support the daily living needs of the population will remain open. Specific outlets in the malls will remain open for this purpose. These include supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, food and beverage outlets, and other outlets offering essential services. All other physical retail outlets shall be closed.


6.            The Public Service will be fully operational and government services will be available, but with the majority of the public service workforce telecommuting. Physical counter services will be scaled down, with reduced staff manning for safe distancing, but digital services will continue to be available. Residents can continue to use e-services but are advised to defer any non-urgent visits.

7.            Essential services like healthcare, social services, financial services, cleaning services, and water, energy, and environment related services will also continue to operate. Other selected services required for daily living (e.g. hairdressers/ barbers, lift maintenance, laundry), transport services, and telecommunications services will remain open.

8.            Please refer to https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg/essentialservices for the latest and most updated list of essential activities that will be allowed to continue to operate.

 
Closure of Workplace Premises

9.            Many workplaces, including all public service agencies, have already implemented telecommuting arrangements for a sizeable proportion of their employees. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has also stepped up inspections and issued Stop Work Orders or Remedial Orders to firms that have failed to follow MOM advisories on telecommuting[1] .

10.          However, further actions are necessary to reduce even more the proportion of our workforce who commute for work. All business, social, or other activities that cannot be conducted through telecommuting from home will be suspended from 7 April 2020 to 4 May 2020 (inclusive). Essential Services and their related supply chains, as well as entities that form a part of the global supply chain, are exempted from the suspension.

11.          Entities providing essential services will need to operate with the minimum staff needed on their premises[2] to ensure the continued running of those services, and implement strict safe distancing measures. Social interactions, including during meal times, must be avoided. These firms may be required to suspend their operations should any of their staff working on the premises become infected.

12.          Employers that are able to continue to operate their businesses (in limited or full capacity) with their employees working from home should continue to do so.

13.          Entities which carry out activities listed on the above-mentioned website (see paragraph 8 for hyperlink) are permitted to continue to operate from their premises. They are required to submit details of their plans to operate with enhanced safe distancing measures in place at https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg by end of 13 April 2020. They may continue to perform their essential services while waiting for our response. Entities which are not performing services listed but believe they have strong grounds for exemption from the suspension should read the guidance and FAQs provided by MTI. They may then apply to be exempted via the same website. Only entities performing, or providing critical support for, essential activities will be exempted.

14.          Except for those allowed to commute for work, Singapore residents and foreign workers should remain largely within their place of residence. They can still go out to buy meals or other essentials, or procure essential services, but should otherwise minimise the time they spend outside.

15.          Given the emergence of cluster of cases in foreign worker dormitories, we will put in place extra precautions. All foreign workers living in such dormitories will be required to stay within their dormitory premises.  Dormitory operators will also have to adopt additional measures in these premises to minimise the risk of transmission, and to reduce inter-mixing of workers between blocks. Dormitory operators are also required to put up clear signages to inform the foreign workers not to congregate or gather at common areas. MOM is following up with dormitory operators on immediate implementation of all of these measures.

 
Full Home-Based Learning for Schools

16.          From 8 April 2020 to 4 May 2020, schools and institutes of higher learning will shift to full home-based learning, while preschool and student care centres will suspend services. Private education institutions should also move to home-based learning, or suspend classes otherwise.

17.          Parents working in essential services such as healthcare, who are unable to secure alternative care arrangements may approach their children’s preschools and primary schools for assistance.

 
Closure of Recreation Venues, Attractions and Places of Worship

18.          From 7 April 2020, all attractions, theme parks, museums and casinos will be closed. Sports and recreation facilities, such as public swimming pools, country clubs, gyms and fitness studios will also be closed. All recreational facilities in hotels will be closed.

19.          As earlier announced, organised sporting programmes and religious services will remain suspended. Places of worship will be closed.


Support for Businesses and Households

20.          These measures are necessary, but will have disruption to businesses and households. The Government will announce added support for households and businesses on 6 April 2020, on top of what was provided in the earlier Budgets to tide them over the next month.

 
Protection for the General Population

21.          Our population is best protected not through a single measure on its own, but a collection. These include safe distancing, good personal hygiene such as regular hand washing and not touching one’s face unnecessarily. Of particular importance is to protect vulnerable groups, especially our seniors.

22.          Members of the public are strongly advised to stay at home and avoid going out unnecessarily, except to purchase daily necessities, essential services, or for urgent medical needs. There should be no social gatherings. Social contact should be confined to immediate family members living in the same household during this period.

23.          Members of the public who need to exercise should do so on their own, around their immediate neighbourhood in open, uncrowded places. Public parks and open-air stadiums will remain open, but gatherings in groups in these spaces must be avoided. Members of the public should practise safe distancing even in open spaces.

 
Use of Masks

24.          The Government’s recommendation on the use of masks thus far has been based on scientific advice and guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), and that is for individuals to wear surgical masks only when sick, in order to protect others. This was also when we did not have community spread of the virus in Singapore.

25.          The situation is now changing. There is increased local transmission in Singapore, and a possibility of some undetected cases in the community. There is also some evidence that infected people showing no symptoms may infect others. This is why the WHO is reviewing its guidelines on mask usage.

26.          Given these changed circumstances, we have updated our guidance. The general public is advised to stay home and avoid interactions with anyone other than immediate family members living in the same household. For those who need to go out, and are unable to avoid close contact with others, then wearing a mask could provide some protection. Reusable masks can be considered for this purpose, to provide some basic protection. This is because there is currently a global shortage of surgical masks, and we need to conserve these masks for those who need them most, i.e. our healthcare workers.

27.          We will distribute reusable masks to all residents with registered home addresses. The distribution will take place progressively from 5 to 12 April 2020, from collection points at designated Community Clubs/ Centres (CCs) and Residents’ Committee (RC) Centres. Family/ household members will be able to collect on behalf of their other household members.

 
Social Responsibility is Key


28.          Social responsibility is critical in slowing the spread of COVID-19. We need all Singaporeans to do the right thing, if we are to beat the virus.

29.          Those who are unwell, even with mild flu-like symptoms, should see a doctor immediately. They should not go out into the public for any other purpose, and should not come into close contact with others. We should stop non-essential activities and avoid all gatherings beyond our immediate family or household members during this period. All should adopt safe distancing and good hygiene practices even at home, and encourage your friends and family to do so as well.
