We clapped for our frontline workers, and sang ‘Home’ together. Now let’s reflect as we transit into Phase 1 of Post-Circuit Breaker.

On Monday 1 June, 7.30pm, join us on any Mediacorp channels, meWATCH or the Gov.sg Facebook page, and hear stories of how we have grown stronger as one as we ride through this COVID-19 crisis together.

Sing along with Joanna Dong 董姿彦, the Singapore Symphony Chorus, the Singapore Symphony Children's Choir and the Singapore Symphony Youth Choir as they perform ‘We Will Get There’. Remember to hashtag #SingaporeTogether and #StrongerAsOneSG when posting your video on social media!

The journey ahead is a long one, but together, we will get there ❤️

COVID-19: Cautious Re-Opening

S'pore has significantly reduced community cases, but not eliminated virus

Cases will rise as activities resume
- Due to undetected cases in population
- Eg. 8 out of 16,000 pre-school teachers recently tested positive
- Countries that lifted restrictions cautiously saw smaller increase in cases

Phased re-opening necessary
- Not all activities re-open so as to minimise interactions
- Enable quick detection and ring-fencing of new cases
- Test population proactively
- If measures work, we will resume more activities before end Jun

Protecting lives and livelihoods
- More support measures in 4th Budget later today
