TraceTogether & SafeEntry to be Enhanced in Preparation for Further Opening of the Economy

Dear members of the media,

Thank you for attending the virtual MTF press conference on 9 Sep 2020.

The nationwide distribution of the TraceTogether (TT) Tokens will start from 14 September 2020. This will enable more Singapore residents to be protected by the TT Programme, particularly the elderly who may not have suitable smart phones to operate the App.

For certain venues with higher-risk activities such as larger-scale business-to-business events, SafeEntry will require the TT App or Token to check in. The "TT-only SafeEntry" will first be piloted at selected venues.

From 10 September 2020, a new Self-Check service and SMS service will be launched so that people can be alerted if they have visitied the same venues at the same time as COVID-19 cases.

More details can be found in the attached press release.

For immediate reporting, please.

Thank you.
