Singapore is implementing strict "circuit breaker" measures from April 7 to May 4 to tackle rising numbers in local COVID-19 transmissions.
Announced on April 3 by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the move aims to significantly reduce movements and interactions in public and private places, in hopes of bringing the infection numbers down.
Only essential services that support daily needs will remain open, with safe-distancing measures in place. Non-essential services and retail outlets, such as recreation venues, sports and recreation facilities, will be closed.
Residents have been asked to only leave house if necessary, such as to buy daily necessities or for urgent medical needs; not to hold social gatherings; and limit social contact to immediate family members.
