    5 Singapore Phase 1 Safe Reopening Measures

    Written by

    2 June 2020 (Tuesday) marks the ending of the circuit breaker and opening of phase 1 for Singapore.

    Let's give ourselves a round of applause for abiding by the circuit breaker rules this period. 

    We will be sharing some important Singapore Phase 1 re-opening guidelines that are essential for everyone to know and follow accordingly. 


    Ending of Circuit breaker, what's next? 


    covid 19 5224053 1280 2

    1. Mask on for safe commuting 

    Even though after Singapore circuit breaker has ended, a face mask is essential once we step out of our house. 

    While commuting on public transport, it is important to wear mask and practice social distancing.

    No face shields is allowed on any public transport for your well-being. 

    The government also encourages us to avoid talking on public transport to reduce the spread of the virus. 

    Maintaining good personal hygiene such as washing your hands frequently and usage of hand sanitizer is required too.

    2. Safe Management measures for a safer workplace

     Working from home guidelines still kicks in from June 2 onwards unless absolutely necessary when employee need to access specialised systems or equipment that cannot be accessed from home.

    On phase 1, it starts with businesses that operate in settings with lower transmission risks, including:

    • Most manufacturing and production facilities, eg. semiconductors and medical technology; and
    • Most businesses with employees working in offices and setting that do not require interactions with large groups of people, eg. finance & insurance, and IT & info services.

    Adhering to safe management measures such as temperature screenings and declarations, wearing masks at all times are required while working in the office. 

    Companies are encouraged to implement  Business Continuity Plans (BCPs)  such as stagger working hours & etc to avoid crowded office situations. 

     Some other services that will be allowed to resume includes motor vehicle servicing, aircon servicing, basic pet services, and hairdressers or barbers.

    3. Partial re-opening for school

    Currently, schools will reopen on June 2 for graduating cohorts such as Primary 6, Secondary 4 & 5 only. Students who are attending classes is required to wear masks or face shields throughout the lessons. 

    Wearing of mask will not be required during PE lessons and co-curricular activities will continue to be suspended till further notice.


    Meanwhile, the rest of the cohorts will continue home-based learning & attend lessons in school alternatively on a weekly basis. 

    Pre-schools will fully reopen by June 10 & School-and community-based student care centres will also open from June 2.

    4. Retail shops remain closed

    Thinking of rushing to shop after the circuit beaker ends? Wait for a minute, we are currently still unable to do any shopping because all the retail shops remain close. 

    We also can't purchase our favourite bubble tea yet. On the bright side,  if everything is within the control, F&B, retail outlets, gym, recreation centres & enrichment centres will resume in phase 2. 

    Meanwhile, we can continue to abide by the safety guidelines while we look forward to phase 2.

    5. Leisure Travel still takes time 

     Currently, leisure travel is still not allowed. However, from 2 June onwards travellers are allowed to transit through Changi airport.

    This only apply to those foreign passengers  who are on repatriation flights arranged by their governments. 


    Stringent measures will be implemented to ensure transit passengers remain in designated facilities within the transit area and do not mix with other passengers.

    Airport staff interacting with passengers will be wearing personal protective equipment and existing precautionary measures will still be re-enforced. 


    When things get better, Singapore might be re-opening the border, and we can start travelling again.

    Hence, for us to start traveling again we must do our own part to stop the spreading of the virus & kill the virus successfully.

    5 Travel Tips & Tricks


     Photo from Felice 1

    1. Bring along a universal travel adapter

    Rather than buying a travel adapter kit for multiple countries, our simple travel hack is a more cost-effective option. 

    Opt to purchase a universal travel adapter that can cover more than 150+ counties.

    With a compact universal travel adapter, different types of plugs are made into a single adapter making both traveling and packing easier. 


    travel insurance


    2.  Buying Travel insurance is essential

    We can never belittle the importance of travel insurance. A travel insurance comes in handy during unforeseen circumstances such as theft or damage of baggage, medical expenses, flight delay, or even during an emergency.

    With travel insurance covered, you would seek help easily through dialing the insurance company's emergency hotline or do a claim conveniently by filling up a form and provide essential evidence to qualify for a claim. 


    If you are considering to purchase a travel insurance for your next trip, you may consider  AIG Travel Guard®.

    AIG Travel Guards allows you to choose your plan according to your travel needs such as the countries that you are traveling to and your preferred coverage. 



    3. Roll your clothes in your luggage

    To save yourself for more luggage space, another travel hack that we are sharing is to roll your clothes in your luggage.

    It is ideal to roll your clothes as your luggage will look relatively tidier & it actually optimizes the space in your luggage. 

    Additionally, it also helps to keep clothing wrinkle-free. 

    By freeing up some spaces means you can squeeze more souvenirs back!
