More and more places, shops and services are set to cease temporarily ss the country ramps up measures to reduce further transmission of Covid-19. Only essential services like supermarkets, clinics, hospitals, food delivery to name a few will remain accessible to the public. But if you are feeling cooped up and need to break out for some fresh air or exercise, our parks and green spaces are still open – and you can now track crowd levels in real-time with an interactive webpage developed by NParks.

It's not wrong to miss regular activities prior to the virus and if it is being out in the outdoors, lucky for you these places are still open for you to visit. Of course, stricter measures are applied now like keeping a distance while you're on the Tree Top Walk at MacRitchie Reservoir – which might cause a queue depending on the number of visitors on the day. On the webpage, visitorship status is marked by three colours: orange (high), yellow (moderate) and green (low). Going to a place experiencing high visitorship is not recommended but if you intend to drop by one of the parks and reserves, do remember to observe a safe distance of at least one metre. 

Keeping healthy and active during this period can be quite a challenge but we have plenty of options. If trekking in a nature reserve is not your cup of tea in these times, you can also tune in to an online fitness class to work up a sweat.
