Singapore has been in Phase 2 for what feels like a long time.
Which is about three months.
More recently, the number of Covid-19 cases in Singapore has finally fallen to low two-digit figures, with community cases even reaching low single-digit figures.
The infection rate among foreign workers in dormitories is expected to decline as routine testing continues, Minister for Education Lawrence Wong said on Sep. 23.
As the Covid-19 situation is under control, the Multi-ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced that the restrictions on social activities will be further relaxed from October onwards.
So, the next question will naturally be: When is Phase 3?
Roadmap towards Phase 3 expected to be ready in few weeks' time
At the press conference on Sep. 23, Wong, who is MTF co-chair and education minister, said the taskforce is "charting out the roadmap to Phase 3".
This progress means that the government might soon allow more people for visitations and dining-in at eateries, relaxing the current five-person rule.
There will also be updates on rules around social activities, events in the community, and border measures.
"These progressive steps of opening are part of the roadmap towards Phase 3 and, as I've said earlier, we will work through the potential pathway to Phase 3 and we will share that with everyone when we are ready... perhaps in a few weeks' time."
