Surveillance testing will be carried out for stallholders, shop owners, persons in the F&B industry as well as food delivery persons operating around Chinatown. This will take place from 8 to 9 February 2021, and all individuals in the identified community groups are strongly encouraged to go for testing.
As we celebrate the Chinese New Year festivities, let’s remain socially responsible and remind others to do the same, so that we can keep transmission rates low in Phase 3.
