Five weeks into Phase 2 of re-opening, the number of community cases remain low.
But Singapore must remain vigilant, and not let complacency undermine our past efforts.
In order to detect and ringfence cases of infection as early as possible, the following steps are being taken.
For close contacts of confirmed cases
For infection clusters
For emerging clusters
For individuals with acute respiratory infection (ARI)
It is critical to see a doctor immediately if unwell. Do not go out if you have a fever or respiratory symptoms.
Enhanced enforcement at hotspots
Crowding and poor adherence to safe distancing measures have been observed at some hotspots, including popular night spots, beaches, selected malls and parks, and in HDB towns.
Enhanced crowd control measures
Everyone must behave responsibly, and understand the risks of infection in crowded and close spaces, so that we can avoid a resurgence of cases.
Update on migrant worker dorms
All the dormitories are expected to be cleared by the beginning of August, with the exception of 17 standalone blocks in eight Purpose Built Dormitories (PBDs), which serve as quarantine facilities.
This last batch of workers come from dormitories with a relatively high prevalence of COVID-19. Therefore, the daily case count is expected to be high for the coming two weeks, before tapering down thereafter.
The Government will follow-up with the companies, especially the contractors, to get ready to resume work.
