Yes we are going through pretty much similar things. The government has put more restrictions in place although some part of our lives still run the same. It’s different here because Singapore is not a big country. It’s very orderly and people are very law abiding and self-conscious. Things are somewhat more under control here compared to other countries. But it’s pretty much same thing. Most schools are closing down (more will close) and now most people are working from home and social contacts are being minimized. There’s even lines everywhere showing people the distance we need to keep from each other.

Hahaha. A lot of people are quite content working from home too here. It’s good that you travel quite a lot in your truck. Just make sure you sanitize the truck every now and then. And please bring hand sanitizer everywhere with you. Mask is good but hand sanitizer is even more important.

Tell your family to wash their hands regularly at home. With soap. It’s very, very important. Hopefully this passes soon, Erik. Stay safe there, my friend!
