Safe Distancing SG

So, I made a thing again. For safe distancing rules in Singapore this time.

I realised each time I want to check the latest safe distancing restrictions, I have to google it but end up getting confused by the outdated news articles and past gov press releases.

I know Ministry of Health and gov.sg does press releases/updates every time, but visually I can’t deal with it being so text-heavy. I was inspired by the nifty, helpful infographics that the local newspapers (Straits Times/Today) churn out every time there’s a rule change, but they don’t host it on a constant ‘one-stop’ each time. I really love the -gowhere website series by Singapore’s technology agency in the government Govtech, but they don’t have a one-stop website for safe distancing measures either.

There just isn’t one constant, easy-to-remember link that I can refer to each time the rules are updated. So in the end, I made one myself.

Currently the site shows rules for 10 Aug onwards.

Honestly, I really made this for myself, but figured that maybe others might have the same problem too.

Hope you like this birthday present, Singapore!

Happy National Day to Singaporeans reading this!
