When in Singapore

To reduce the risk of transmission while on the move in Singapore, we have precautionary measures that you can take. Here are some helpful tips to protect yourself and others around you.

  • Always wear a mask in public areas except when dining or exercising.
  • Maintain at least one metre apart at all times.
  • Travel and interact in a group size no larger than 5 people, with effect from 10 August 2021
  • Complete your SafeEntry check-in via the TraceTogether app* before entering restaurants, shopping malls and stores.

*TraceTogether is a contact tracing mobile application that supports Singapore’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19. When phones with the app installed are near each other, they exchange anonymised information via Bluetooth. The data collected by the app is stored securely on your phone, and only shared with the Ministry of Health if you test positive for COVID-19. All data is also automatically deleted after 25 days.
