Phase 2 (heightened alert), mini circuit breaker, CB-lite. Call it what you want, but from May 16 to June 13, life in Singapore won’t be quite the same with the tighter Covid-19 measures in place. With group sizes limited to just two, among other capacity restrictions in public spaces, checking crowd sizes before you go out — whether it’s to run errands at the mall, library, or even Daiso — has become essential once more. Don’t check, and you risk having to wait in line to enter, say, the bank, or dodging the unmasked crowds at the park.
Thank goodness for these online maps and crowd control websites that tell you just how packed various places in Singapore are. Most were launched last year during the circuit breaker, left forgotten as we moseyed into Phase 3, and are once more relevant as we’ve just headed into a Phase 2 v2.
