TraceTogether-only SafeEntry Starting In Malls, Workplaces and School From Jun 1 Onwards
Starting from Jun 1, 2021, all venues such as shopping malls, workplaces, worship, school and educational institutions will be implementing TraceTogether-only SafeEntry. Where the SafeEntry must be performed using the TraceTogether (TT) app or token. Other modes of SafeEntry cehck=in will be discontinued.
In a joint press release by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and SmartNation on Thursday, April 22, the government has announced that more than 90 percent of the population has either downloaded the TraceTogether app or collected the TraceTogether Token. From Jun. 1, TraceTogether-only SafeEntry will be implemented nationwide at all venues that experience higher throughput of visitors, and/ or where people are likely to be in close proximity for prolonged periods.
The full list of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry venues can be found on the SafeEntry website and SafeEntry check-in must thereafter be performed using the TraceTogether app or token in one of three ways:
- Using the app to scan the venue’s QR code.
- Displaying the token so that a venue staff can scan the tokens’ QR code.
- Tapping the app or token at a SafeEntry Gateway device.
With this new TraceTogether-only SafeEntry, the existing requirement for SafeEntry check-ins at larger retail stores and supermarkets located inside the mall will be removed as the visitor has already performed the check-in at the mall entrance. While small retail stores such as pharmacies, convenience stores, and heartland provision shops that were not previously required to implement SafeEntry for customers should also remove their SafeEntry check-ins to increase convenience for their patrons.
The government encourage all TraceTogether app user to ensure their app is updated to latest version and on their Bluetooth to keep the app active in the background and also ensuring their token has not run out of battery and always have the token with them when they leave home. If the token is blinking red or if there is no light at all, users should replace their token at any Community Club/Centre (CC), or at token replacement booths set up at selected malls.
