Temasek Foundation announced last Thursday, Feb. 24, that Singapore citizens with blue or orange Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) cards can get free surgical masks starting Feb. 28 until March 13.
According to Temasek Foundation’s Facebook post, cardholders can collect one box or 50 pieces AIR+ medical-grade surgical masks that can filter up to 99.9% of bacteria and other small particles.
You may collect your free surgical masks from selected malls and supermarkets. Upon collection, individuals must bring along their blue or orange CHAS cards or public assistance/special grant card.
Enter your postal code on the Temasek Foundation's Stay Prepared website to see where the nearest collection spots are.
