The vending machines are stocked up once more, and you know that only means one thing. Yes, more free masks are coming your way at Temasek Foundation’s fourth mask distribution exercise. Mask collection starts Mar 1 at 10am and ends Mar 14 at 11.59pm.
Singapore residents will be entitled to just one free reusable mask this time, unlike previously when each person received two masks. This time, the mask distributed is the MaskPlus™ Livinguard reusable mask which comes in dark blue. The anti-viral and anti-bacterial mask can be washed up to 30 times, and needs to be washed only once a week. Fab news if you like having less chores to do. The mask can be used for up to seven months if worn daily and washed weekly.
The new masks are available in four sizes (S, M, L and XL). However, the sizing is different this time round, and you’re advised to go to https://stayprepared.sg/masks to check your size prior to collection. Free S size masks are only available to children aged eight and below.
Additional masks are available for $10 each and can be pre-ordered at the same website or via the DBS PayLah app from Mar 1 at 10am until Mar 13 at 11.59pm.
Where to collect your free masks:
Pick up your free reusable mask at over 1,100 vending machines at over 800 locations. These include Community Centres/Clubs, Residents’ Committees, selected bus interchanges and eight CapitaLand malls including Plaza Singapura, Singapore University of Technology and Design and Temasek Shophouse.
