TL;DR – MBS Badge Lady memes appreciation post.
So, a few hours ago, it was announced that masks will no longer be mandatory in outdoor settings from 29 March. In a televised address to the nation, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that this part of a “decisive step forward” for Singapore to live with Covid-19.
Other changes to the Safe Management Measures (SMMs) that were announced include:
- The group size for social gatherings will be doubled from the current five persons limit to 10 persons.
- 75% of employees who can work from home can return to offices, up from 50%.
- The capacity limit for larger events and settings of more than 1,000 people will be increased to 75%
These various changes will take effect on 29 March, Tuesday.
Safe distancing requirements to remain unchanged
Although wearing masks outdoors will be made optional, however, indoor mask-wearing will still be mandatory.
Similarly, safe distancing requirements – keeping a 1m distance between groups where masks are off – will remain in place, for now, to minimise transmission in mask-off settings as well.
