Clarification on surgical masks distribution:

[Sent by – 3 Feb]

Mask distribution

Why is the Government distributing masks? Is the situation escalating?
We’re doing so as part of our preparedness, to assure each household that you have access to masks. There is currently no evidence of community spread in Singapore.

Why only 4 surgical masks to each household?
These 4 masks are for use only if you are sick and need to visit a doctor. Clinics and hospitals have enough masks for their patients. Don’t wear the masks if you are well.

What do I do if I miss the distribution?
Visit or call 1800-333-9999 for your collection details. If you miss your collection date, contact your CC/RC to make alternative arrangements.

What is being done to those who sell masks at high prices?
Warnings have been issued to errant retailers. You can report errant sellers to CASE at 6100-0315.

More info:

I believe stronger action is required to anyone profiting from current situation. We’re all in this together guys!
