Following a major relaxation of Covid-19 rules announced on April 22, the crowds are no longer hindered by barriers or SafeEntry counters — despite the mask-on requirement in indoor settings.

It is now common to see long lines at the Woodlands Checkpoint (land borders reopened on April 1) or at nightlife institution Zouk in Clarke Quay (all nightclubs reopened from April 19).
