Singapore downgraded the crisis level of the pandemic, scrapping all tests for incoming vaccinated visitors and limits on gathering sizes as it takes further steps to live with Covid-19.

Other moves from April 26 include allowing all workers to return to the workplace and doing away with checking people’s vaccination statuses at most places, the Ministry of Health said Friday. The requirement to wear masks indoors still remains, though workers can take them off in the office when they are not interacting physically with others, it said.

The steps taken spell the end of some of the city-state’s longest-standing curbs and brings the nation close to a pre-pandemic sense of normalcy since restrictions were first imposed over two years ago. Singapore recently lifted most rules for fully vaccinated visitors and a requirement to wear masks outdoors.
