Dec 28


 

Daily Dose : Dec 28

Mark that date on your calendar. Phase 3 will begin on Dec 28.

In case you think this is time for celebration, think again. Phase 3 is calibrated to move Singapore closer to normalcy. It does NOT mean the end of wearing masks, having parties or large gatherings. Instead, it allows for immediate families to meet, business to expand capacity and people to head back to places of worship. 

Before you go gung-ho and proclaim a Phase 3 party at your house, please be aware that Covid19 is not eradicated and the nation is not vaccinated yet.

On that note, we are pretty curious about the date. Dec 28 is a couple of days after Christmas thus ensuring Christmas parties will be reined in. However, that gives room for people to bust the limit on New Year's Eve. With pent up need to socialise, a loosening of sorts may lead to a stampede of groups descending down Marina Bay. Already we had seen families and friends using the guise of staycation to go out in groups of more than 5. Hopefully, this 'green light' would not result in a mass gathering come to New Year's Eve.
