Smart Reads of the Week: Vaccines and a Further Easing of Rules

There was more good news announced recently concerning our fight against COVID-19.

With the bulk of cases being imported in recent weeks, Singapore has further updated its pandemic-related measures on 24 March.

From 5 April, workplaces can now accommodate up to 75% of staff, up from 50% currently.

Working from home will no longer be the default option, and split teams will not be mandatory.

This gradual easing should benefit transport operators such as ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited (SGX: C52) and SBS Transit Ltd (SGX: S61).

And from 24 April, live performances can hold up to 750 people if pre-event testing is implemented.

Marriage solemnisation and receptions can also allow 250 people, more than double the current 100, also with pre-event testing.

The relaxation in rules suggests that Singapore may be turning an important corner in our fight against COVID-19.

But as the government says, we should not be complacent.

Here is a list of our top articles for the week.
