First steps in office reopening
Hello, Ivan here! Our service centre is still closed today but we entered the office at 8 am with Wong Chen to prepare for our reopening. We are still planning out how to make sure constituents who come to our office, practice social distancing. We are also still in the process of buying necessary things such as additional masks and sanitisers.
Every constituent who wants to enter office will have to go through a temperature scan before they can enter the office and we will also take down their particulars. We will be limiting the number of people in the office at any given time so that there will be ample space to maintain a distance from one another and limiting the duration of each constituents.
We will update everyone on our working hours once we finalised everything. Sanitise your hands frequently and practice social distancing when going out. Stay safe everyone!
