According to Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing, who is also the deputy chairman of the People's Association, all Singapore residents with a household address will be able to collect one reusable mask each.

These reusable masks should be washed and dried properly after use.

The collection will start from this Sunday (April 5) to next Sunday (April 12).

For weekdays, the collection will start at 3pm to 9pm.

For weekends and public holiday (Good Friday), the collection will be from 10am to 9pm.

<h2>CCs and RCs</h2>

All residents can collect from the Community Centres (CCs) and Residents' Committees (RCs) similar to the previous round of masks collection.

Families can collect on behalf of their members by bringing along their identification documents that have a barcode for verification such as NRIC or birth certificate.
