Safe distancing measures at NUS UTown hostel dining hall during circuit breaker period [3]

"Photograph of tables and chairs in hostel dining hall, with social distancing measures, and extra chairs collected in an area. Photos taken from around NUS and my student hostel when the university started implementing social distancing measures. Slowly, more students decided to move out of their campus accommodations as restrictions were increased. As the circuit breaker kicked in, dining in canteens was disallowed and the tables were removed. All this made the atmosphere around campus much more sombre, a stark difference from the usual liveliness we were used to."--Contributed by Max Ang, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call. This photograph shows an empty NUS UTown hostel dining hall during the circuit breaker period. Tables are spaced out to ensure diners maintain a safe distance between them. Chairs are stacked up in one area of the dining hall. Additional description by Library staff. Title devised by Library staff.
