Here are some FAQs from MaskGoWhere.gov.sg that is worth calling out:
1) Who is eligible to receive a reusable mask and how many masks are they entitled to collect?Every resident with a registered home address can collect one (1) Reusable Mask each from collection points at designated Community Club/Centres (CCs) and Residents’ Committee (RC) Centres.
This includes foreign domestic workers, foreign workers not living in dormitories, long-term visit pass holders, social visit pass holders and international students living in hostels, excluding foreign tourists.
For foreign workers living in dormitories, the masks will be distributed through Ministry of Manpower channels.
3) How many types of masks are there? Can I choose which type I want, or exchange them if a wrong type was given?There are two types available for this exercise – a kid size mask for those aged 12 years and below, and an adult size mask. As such, an adult will not be allowed to collect a kid size mask without a valid child’s ID. However, a child will be allowed to collect adult size masks, if he or she wishes to get a bigger mask.
The reusable masks are distributed on a non-exchangeable and non-returnable basis due to hygiene reason.
