Covid-19: Royal Caribbean cruise guests only need to take ART swab pre-departure | THE BIG STORY

Guests going aboard Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas cruise ship from Nov 8 will have to take only an antigen rapid test at the cruise terminal on the day of departure. Previously, they were required to take a pre-departure PCR test.

Up to 3,000 vaccinated migrant workers will be able to visit Little India and Geylang Serai weekly for up to eight hours each time starting from Oct 30. The Manpower Ministry will also further ease restrictions for visits to recreation centres.

  3. As I have said multiples of times before;

    Vaccination should never have been used as an excuse to risk Singaporeans’ lives.

    It does not confer immunity and still exposes Singaporeans to the virus.

    Stop the imports from higher-risk countries and the leaks into the communities.

    Safe Guard the life-safety of all Singaporeans, particularly the younger ones, elderly and those who cannot be vaccinated as TOP Priority.
