Singaporeans can go out for essential needs during the circuit breaker, but should go alone instead of bringing their families along.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong addressed Singapore’s progress in flattening the curve during the first two weeks of the ‘circuit breaker’.

Most people are doing their part to stay home except to carry out essential tasks like buying groceries or food.

However, more can be done to reduce movement.

PM Lee urged against bringing the entire family out to run errands together. Instead, only one member of each household should go out when necessary.

“If you do need to go out, then go by yourself, not as a group or as a family,” said he said.

“Even when exercising outside, do so only by yourself, and only in your neighbourhood. Remember: it is not just about adhering to the letter of the law.”
