Five things to do this weekend (July 23-25)
With the latest measures in place, here are things you can do from the comforts of your own home!
With the rise in community cases over the last week, we are sadly back to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), with dining-in prohibited and social gathering group sizes capped at two people.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while staying home and staying safe!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Jul 23 to Jul 25):
1. Watch the Olympics
The Summer Tokyo Olympics 2020 is finally set to begin this week on July 23, after being postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are 23 athletes representing Singapore including Joseph Schooling for swimming, Feng Tianwei for table tennis and Tan Sze En for gymnastics.
You can catch the Olympics across Mediacorp’s platforms such as meWATCH, Channel 5 and the Mediacorp Entertainment YouTube channel.

In other Olympic-related news, SingPost has launched a commemorative set of stamps on July 23.
Each stamp features a sport that Singapore athletes will be participating in, such as swimming, sailing, badminton and table tennis. The stamps are priced between $0.30 and $1.40, and can be purchased on SingPost’s website.
