She added that when she returned after buying groceries, the two officers were standing together, “both still chatting there without social distance”.

The woman added that the NEA officers were supposed to be the ones enforcing the rules and observing social distancing measures, “but sad to see they are also the one breaking it”.

She also added that the two officers were sitting at the service shelter between Block 878 and 879 at Woodlands Ave 9.

According to the netizen, she identified them as NEA officers from the tags and IDs that they were wearing, as well as through their uniforms.
