Front of leaflet on wearing of face mask before circuit breaker period

"As DORSCON was declared as at Orange on 7th Feb 2020, I saw people resorting to panic stocking etc. There was a beautiful process of distribution of masks across Singapore. Each household got four free masks. I went to the nearby Community Centre and collected – the process was very smooth and the delivery extraordinarily efficient. The masks were so nicely packed, and instructions were printed clearly on the cover. In fact I joined the whatsapp group of the Govt to get updates on COVID-19 on reading the instructions on the cover and, that was so beneficial."--Contributed by Mrs. Rajalakshmi Rangarajan, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call. This photograph shows the front side of a leaflet on the wearing of face masks issued by the Singapore Government. Prior to the circuit breaker period, only people who were unwell were required to wear face masks. Additional description by Library staff.
