Updates on Singapore's COVID-19 Situation

Resuming Our Transition Towards COVID Resilience

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced on 20 November 2021 that we will exit the Stabilisation Phase into a Transition Phase.

From 22 November 2021, we will increase group sizes for dine-in and social gatherings from 2 to 5 persons, irrespective of whether the group members are from the same household or not. We will also extend our Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) to protect the unvaccinated from getting infected and becoming severely ill. In-person visits to hospitals and residential care homes will also resume with VDS in place. To enhance protection for our population as we ease community measures, we will also accelerate our booster vaccination programme. 

Even with these moves, it is important that we remain disciplined and vigilant. While the local situation is stabilising and our healthcare system is still able to manage the current caseload, we must not let our guard down. We should not seek to push the limits, but should continue to exercise restraint in our social interactions even as we approach the year-end period. All of us need to continue to play our part to prevent another wave of infection which could put pressure on our healthcare system.

Volunteer doctors and nurses needed for Home Vaccination Teams. Register and help more seniors get vaccinated sooner.

Vaccination reduces the severity of illness and vaccinated people clear the viruses and recover faster. Home Vaccination Teams (HVT) have been getting more seniors vaccinated.

If you are a doctor or nurse keen to support HVT, register with the SG Healthcare Corps at shc@moh.gov.sg or call 6325-9220.

We must protect as many as we can. Everyone can help!
