It is so good to be home. With the implementation of Covid-19 “Circuit Breaker” (from 7 April – 4 May) to heighten safe-distancing measures, only essential services that support daily needs remain open. Workplace premises of non-essential businesses are closed and Singaporeans can only perform work via telecommuting from home. Home-Based Learning (HBL) has also kicked in from 8 April, keeping all primary, secondary, Pre-University and IHL students, including students from Special Education (SPED) schools, safe in their homes.
