Since most people in Singapore work from home and are only on the go during this "circuit breaker" phase, many of us may not board a public bus or train for some time.
However, some still commute when they work in essential services or have other reasons to travel.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has started to implement additional safe distance measures in the public transport network.
All MRT trains, train stations, buses, bus stops and bus stops are gradually marked with safe distance stickers.
The stickers mark areas where commuters should be standing and seats that they should leave empty to ensure a safe distance from others.
Transport ambassadors are also used to help bus captains and LTA law enforcement officers ensure that people adhere to the measures.
For example, they can limit the number of commuters who can enter train stations and buses.
Thermal scanners are also set up at selected MRI stations to check commuters before entering.
Commuters who are diagnosed with a fever are not allowed to enter the ward and are asked to see a doctor at the nearest clinic immediately.
Serangoon and Tiong Bahru are the first two MRI stations to have thermal screening performed.
"Commuters are reminded to avoid driving on public transport and to go to the nearest clinic (s) if they feel uncomfortable," said LTA.
Those who need to travel for essential purposes should also put on a reusable mask when traveling by public transport.
