PM Lee Announces Sweeping Measures In National Address

All schools moved to home-based learning – i.e. Closed

Starting from Apr 8 (Wed), all schools and institutes of higher learning will move to full home-base learning. All preschool and student care centres will also be closed, but will provide limited services for children of parents who have to continue working and are unable to make alternative care arrangements.

Work from home

All non-essential businesses will be closed and employees are required to work from home where possible.

Strategic industries like healthcare, food & beverage, supermarkets, and clinics will remain open.

Minimize social contact

PM Lee also urged Singaporeans to suspend all social gatherings beyond the household, even with extended members of the family, and to only leave the house for essential tasks like buying groceries, taking home food, going to the bank, or exercising in the park. All social gatherings are now confined to the household.
