As anticipated, Singapore is gearing up to exit the 'circuit breaker' on June 1. However, this does not mean that life returns to normal straight away. The city is instead set to reopen in three phases over several months, with measures progressively lifted according to each phase from June 2. These phases are broken down into Phase 1 (Safe opening), Phase 2 (Safe transition) and Phase 3 (Safe Singapore).
In a virtual press conference on May 19, National Development Minister Lawrence Wong announced that due to our collective efforts over the past few weeks to control the spread, we are now ready to exit the circuit breaker and can now start planning to resume activities safely and in a phased manner. This is so we don't sacrifice the efforts the nation has put in over the past few weeks to control the outbreak.
You may have more questions about what exactly each phase entails. We've got you. We break down the restrictions for you and detail what can and can't be done as Singapore reopens. For more information on current regulations, you can also visit gov.sg.
