Singapore (VNA) – Singapore will roll out its TT Token (Trace Together Token) to the public for free from September 14 and pilot its Safe Entry programme using TT Token devices or app in several venues.

During a press conference on September 9, Singaporean officials said as the COVID-19 has been basically under control, Singapore will take new measures to trace infection sources when the island state begins to reopen economy in the near future.

The distribution is expected to be completed in late November.

Furthermore, a new Self-Check service and SMS service will be introduced from September 10 so that people can be alerted if they have visited the same venues at the same time as COVID-19 cases, based on their own SafeEntry records.

This Self-Check service will be available on the TraceTogether app. Individuals can also access the Self-Check service via SingPass Mobile.

On September 9, the Singaporean Health Ministry announced that from September 17, all travellers from India who are not Singaporeans and permanent residents will have to take a COVID-19 test before departing for Singapore./.
