A sudden spike of cases has forced the city-state back to observing the 'rule of two'
Singapore has been forced back into a soft lockdown, or phase 2 (Heightened Alert), just weeks after enjoying a return to ‘normalcy’. From July 22 to August 18, residents must observe the ‘rule of two’ for social gatherings, including house visits, and dining in will not be allowed during the period. As usual, the Ministry of Health (MOH) and their team of officials will do a review of the latest COVID-19 situation two weeks after the measures kick into gear – they will then adjust the restrictions accordingly. The latest rules were announced just as Singapore tackles massive COVID clusters linked with KTV activities and Jurong Fishery Port.
