It seems that many nations are gradually opening up, accepting travellers, and embracing the new “discovered” freedom as the pandemic turns into an endemic.

Following the recent declaration that a mask was no longer required when going outside in Singapore, they have stated that the mask requirements will be lifted and that members of the public will be given the option to wear a mask or not.
