All residents of Singapore can get two free MaskSafe DET30™ masks provided by Temasek Foundation that are reusable, antimicrobial and washable up to 30 times. Masks can be collected for yourself as well as on behalf of others from any of the 1,200 Temasek Foundation vending machines at more than 800 locations islandwide, comprising Community Centre/Clubs, Residents’ Committee Centres and bus interchanges, from Monday 29th June (10am) until Sunday 12th July (11.59pm)
In order to collect your masks at one of the vending machines, you need to bring your NRIC, Birth Certificate or any government-issued identification that has a barcode (as well as the ID of those that you are collecting for) and scan it at the vending machine.
The masks have three layers of protection – the outermost layer is water repellent and antimicrobial, the middle layer performs particle filtration and the innermost layer is made from light woven cotton fabric for comfort.
