by • April 15, 2020 • OhmyhomeComments (0)146

Are you one of the 80% of the workforce who is now working from home? You are helping to flatten the curve by staying home.

Keep in mind that strict enforcement will continue against those who flout the rules imposed last 7 April to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Individuals who will flout the safe distancing measures will have these penalties:

  • $300 for the first offence
  • $1,000 for the second offence
  • Serious or repetitive cases will be prosecuted in court

Offences by essential service providers, business owners or occupiers will have these penalties:

  • $1,000 on the first offence
  • Repeat offenders will face higher fines
  • Serious or repetitive cases will be prosecuted in court

Mandatory Wearing of Mask

As of 14 April 2020, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce has updated its guidance on wearing masks based on the latest scientific advice. Now, it is mandatory for all persons to wear a mask when leaving their homes.

  • Mask-wearing is not recommended for young children below the age of two for safety reasons.
  • First-time offenders will have a penalty of $300
  • Repeat offenders will face higher fines
  • Serious or repetitive cases will be prosecuted in court

Planning to exercise within your neighbourhood park? You may remove your mask while engaging in strenuous exercise outdoors (e.g. running/ jogging), but take note that you must put it back on after completing your exercise. You can also stay physically fit indoors with these workout tips.


If you are thinking of buying, selling, or renting property while the circuit breaker measures are in effect, don’t worry! Our team is still hard at work.
