January 23, 2022
Temasek Foundation’s sixth mask distribution exercise ends this Sunday (Jan 23, 2022, 2359).
If you have not collected, you can do so by the deadline at a vending machine near you.
Where to collect?
You can collect your mask at almost 1,000 vending machines located in Community Centres, Residents’ Committee centres, select bus interchanges, select recreation centres for migrant workers, Plaza Singapura and Temasek Shophouse (near Dhoby Ghaut MRT station).
What to bring?
Each Singapore resident may collect one free mask using an NRIC, school smartcard, birth certificate, FIN, or any other government-issued ID with a barcode. You can collect on behalf of your family members, just remember to bring any of the aforementioned IDs or manually key in their ID numbers.
This new rinsible and reusable MaskPureTM AIR+ mask offers better protection with N95-grade filtration and good breathability. It is only available in M or L, so please check out the sizing chart here.
How long can one use the mask for?
The water-repellent mask can be rinsed once a week (or when dirty), and retains its protective features for up to 30 rinses or more than seven months if worn daily and rinsed weekly.
After 30 rinses, the mask can continue to be used like an ordinary mask or used with other masks for added protection.
Remember, collection ends on Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, 2359.
