Singapore will ease some COVID-19 measures such as allowing household members to dine-in together if the weekly infection growth rate drops below 1 and the hospital situation is stable, said co-chair of the multi-ministry task force Lawrence Wong during a press conference on Saturday (Oct 23).

The task force also announced that the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine will be included in Singapore’s national vaccination programme.

From Jan 1, 2022, only employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have recovered from the disease within the past 270 days will be allowed to return to workplaces.

A slew of border measures were eased, including the resumption of travel from countries such as Bangladesh and India, as well as the loosening of quarantine restrictions for those from Category III countries, which now include Malaysia and Indonesia.

This is the full news conference by the multi-ministry task force and subsequent Q&A session with journalists.
