The collection of free N95 and medical grade surgical masks by Temasek Foundation begins today (August 26).
But there is no need to rush as the collection will last till Sep. 26, 2021.
Each household can redeem 50 medical-grade surgical masks and 25 N95 respirator masks at participating malls and supermarkets.
To find the nearest collection point, simply head over to the Stay Prepared website and enter your postal code:
Digital queue system
Residents can also collect the face masks at selected CapitaLand Malls without waiting in line, thanks to a digital queue system.
The number of people in the virtual queue at each mall is also reflected on the website.
After getting a queue number online you can check your queue status via the website too.
You will receive a notification when it is your turn to collect the face masks.
Full list of collection points
As of Aug. 25, there are over 130 places where you can collect the free masks. Here's the full list:
What to bring?
You will need to bring your physical Singapore Power (SP) residential bill or show your SP account number for collection.
Residents may also collect the masks on behalf of others by bringing along their SP residential bills with the account barcode or SP account numbers if they have been authorised to do so.
Residents are reminded to bring their own bags to carry the free masks as no bags will be provided at collection points.
For hygiene reasons, returns or exchanges of the masks will not be allowed.
