Tan Chuan-Jin on easing Parliament COVID-19 measures

02:14 Min

COVID-19 measures have been eased further for Parliament sessions, as Singapore moves "steadfastly towards normalcy", Speaker Tan Chuan-Jin said on Monday (Oct 3). Members will now be seated in the Chamber without the need for split-team arrangement. All members can take their breaks together in one room. But they still have to self-test before going to the House for sittings. Seats in the Speaker's Gallery within the Chamber will continue to be set aside for members who are close contact of COVID-19 cases, but test COVID-negative. Mr Tan thanked all members for their efforts which have allowed them to carry on with their duties as parliamentarians during a critical time for Singapore, and facilitated a quick return to "business as usual".
