SINGAPORE: How the tides have turned. Only a month ago, Singapore had just relaxed its COVID-19 restrictions, allowing more to return to offices and attend events. Crowds were thronging shopping malls and attractions. Plans were made for staycations and gatherings. Masks were more often worn revealing noses. Call it COVID-19 fatigue, the setting in of complacency in our safety measures of mandatory mask-wearing and venue-capacity controls, we were all happy to have some semblance of normalcy as Singapore reopened.

Take your pick, but officially, it's known as Phase 2: Heightened Alert (P2HA), which resulted in at least one glorious meme, for those of us who spent endless hours playing "Command & Conquer: Red Alert" back in the day. Here's a handy comparison chart for what you can and cannot do during P2HA: Notice something? PH2A is much more "easy-going" as compared to the Circuit Breaker. Retail shops are open, you can buy 4D and Toto, and perhaps most important of all, bubble tea shops are open for takeaway orders (although some have closed ). Back on May 4, when now-Finance Minister and Covid-19 multi-ministry task force co-chair Lawrence Wong announced the latest measures, he said that the government is not ruling out the possibility of another Circuit Breaker.
