Earlier yesterday, the Singapore government announced further measures to control the outbreak of COVID-19. Among these measures include the extension of the circuit breaker period for another month as well as further closure of businesses in certain service areas.

Of course, this move will most likely impact the business outlook for most Singapore business owners. Most were already expecting to resume their operations two weeks later, but the extension has forced them to put aside that plan for another four weeks.

We spoke to seven local business owners ranging from various industries on their thoughts about the extended circuit breaker and how are they are planning to adapt to these new changes.

I hope everyone will do their part, to ensure there will not be any further extension to the Circuit Breaker.
