Stay safe, have fun and don’t flout the rules

We get it—the new, stricter Covid-19 measures that come with Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) can really dampen one's spirits. But as we wait for further announcements about our nation’s situation, there are still some fun things you can do to stay sane while keeping safe.

Just remember to mask up at all times and abide by the restrictions implemented.
 

Book a staycation
 

Locals are still allowed to enjoy staycations at hotels and resorts islandwide. Just remember to keep your getaway among two people, unless you’re all from the same household.
 

Catch a movie
 

Feel free to catch a movie with a friend. Better yet, try our country’s first socially distanced cinema for the coolest arthouse picks. But as the consumption of food and beverages at cinemas is prohibited, be sure to grab a bite at home before heading out.
 

Cook up a storm at home
 

Nothing’s stopping you from trying your hand at cooking or baking this Phase 2. In fact, consider inviting no more than two friends to your place to try new pasta or pizza recipes.
 

Enjoy a take-out feast
 

Not in the mood to cook? Just order a lavish feast and pig out in front of the TV. We won’t judge.

Head to museums in pairs
 

Visiting new exhibitions and art showcases in town is still a possibility this Phase 2. Go in pairs to check out new artworks and installations; safe distancing rules still apply.
 

Pick up reading materials at the library
 

There’s no better time to curl up with a good book at home. Simply head to your nearest library to pick up awesome reading materials and more.
 

Shop till you drop from the comforts of home
 

Besides heading to the mall for more loungewear, you can also stay home and shop up. Check out Shopee’s Stay Safe Stay Home collection for everything you might need to keep safe from the comforts of home.
 

Visit nature parks with a friend
 

Now that work-from-home is the default, proper, scheduled breaks are more important than ever. Take a walk at a nearby park with your family, or pop by these free places in Singapore to feel closer to nature.
