Singapore is easing its Covid-19 restrictions, starting with the March 29, 2022, lifting of an outdoor mask mandate that had been in place for almost two years. Quarantine-free entry to the city state will be allowed for vaccinated travellers from April 1. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his counterpart in Malaysia, Ismail Sabri Yaakob, have also announced their shared land border will reopen to fully vaccinated travellers on the same day. Lee said Singapore had reached a “major milestone” in its Covid-19 journey, but he also flagged the possibility of a need to deal with “more aggressive and dangerous” variants in the future.
