Ms Juliet Foo, 36, who had been working at a medical clinic in Raffles Place throughout the circuit breaker period, said that trains on the North East Line were about 30 per cent more crowded this morning.Her friend, who did not want to be named and took the Downtown Line to work, said that people still respected social distancing measures where they could, even though the green and orange stickers plastered over alternate seats in the trains had been removed.

As part of a phased reopening, train and bus intervals returned to pre-circuit breaker levels, with trains pulling into Raffles Place MRT station every two minutes during peak hour.June 2 is the first day workers were allowed to return to their workplace, provided that they could not continue working from home, which must remain the default mode of work.

Workers are allowed back to their workplaces if necessary, to use equipment inaccessible from home or to fulfil legal requirements.While in the office, they must adhere to safe management measures such as temperature screenings, practising good personal hygiene and wearing masks at all times, except during activities that require them to be removed.

Ms Liao Yilin, 28, who works in a sales role, said her department was asked to return to the office in Raffles Place to conduct face-to-face meetings with clients. Workers in other departments can continue to work from home.Cubicles at her workplace have barriers and are spaced 1m apart. There are also safe distancing markings throughout. Seats at the pantry have been reduced and staff eat at staggered times.

Still, she admitted that she feels worried."I have no choice. If I don't return to the office, I'm worried I'll get sacked. It is very hard to find a job now, so I feel a bit sandwiched," she said, adding that she would have preferred to be at home to help her daughter, who is a Primary 1 pupil, with home-based learning.

Schools reopened today but daily classes on school premises will be held only for the graduating cohorts of Primary 6 and Secondary 4 and 5. All other students will alternate weekly between home-based learning and lessons at school. Read more: The Straits Times »

This is nearer normal...so everyone needs to adjust as more go to work and use trains and buses...bring the face mask and dont be sick when travelling.. I dont see any social distance here🤔 Because those have been WFH, guess 50% start work on 2 Jun, that's why seeing crowded buses and trains at peak hours.

Is this call social distancing? no one metre apart anymore? Even there’s no mingling amongst each other? Is this really safe How often will the train hanging bar to be disinfected? too soon.. too soon. Just pray there will be no 2nd wave in 🇸🇬.. 🙏🙏🙏 Er and in other news the world is round

We'll see if their work passes are revoked as flaunted by MOM_sg. Cue 'NOT' poster. Is people still having expectations that the Manpower Minister will take actions? Just look at the dormitories issue that wasted so much taxpayer money. Heard people asking if the Manpower Minister will resign or be fired before the election? Otherwise where is accountability? My family in SG say all the local taxi drivers convene without masks every single day and get overlooked. This is pathetic.
