From Nov 30 at 10am to Dec 13, all Singaporean residents will be able to pre-order or collect a free pair of reusable masks provided by the Temasek Foundation.

The new antibacterial masks are from Proshield and come in a sleek black colour, and are washable up to at least 30 times. They are highly breathable and can be used easily during exercise.

Unlike the pleated DET30 style masks distributed during the first few rounds, these new masks are 3D shaped and designed to fit the face snugly, similar to the white Singapore lion masks distributed in the National Day packs.

The new masks come with spare filters and have an added pocket where one can add in the additional filters as they please, such as in cases where they would want extra protection in crowded and prolonged situations.

They are available in four sizes, from small to extra large.

In order to ensure maximum protection and comfort, it is advised to measure and check your size first before collecting your masks.

The best fit for your face can be determined by measuring the point in between the middle of your eyes to the bottom of your chin.

Collection methods remain the same at any available vending machine. Singapore residents with a Singov issued ID like NRIC, FIN card or student pass, are entitled to one free mask kit containing two black reusable masks with additional filters.

This includes citizens, PRs, and work permit holders, as long as they have a Singov issued ID.
