Watch the full Covid-19 multi-ministry task force press conference on May 8, with tighter measures being announced to stop the spread of Covid-19 in the wider community.
Rules on social gatherings will be tightened starting this Saturday (May 8). People will only be allowed to gather in groups of five people, down from eight now. These restrictions also apply to households, which will only be able to receive five distinct visitors a day.
In addition, more people will be required to work from home. Under the new rules, no more than 50 per cent of employees who are able to work from home should be in the office at any one time, down from 75 per cent at present.
These measures will be in place until May 30.
