“Masks help to reduce the expulsion and transmission of droplets, which is the predominant route of transmission of Covid-19.”

“It is therefore important for you to wear a mask so that you will not spread the infection to others if you are infected. This is important even if you feel well because you may be infected but asymptomatic,” said MOH.

Even as people get vaccinated, members of the public are still required to wear masks to minimize the risk of transmission within the community.

First-time offenders who do not wear a mask will be issued composition offers of S$300, and repeat offenders will face higher fines or prosecution in court for egregious cases. /TISG
