Safe to borrow books?

Sorry, my kids (4 yo and 6 mths old) are avid readers who frequent the library & borrow books twice evy mth. Is it safe to borrow books now? Kid 1 carries different books with him evywhere in the house as he reads them 2-3 tms a day. Thank you very much!

Hi @Aicrop thank you for the question! Im delighted to hear that your kids have cultivated such an excellent hobby. Yes, it is absolutely safe to borrow and read books during this time. In fact, it is recommended to do so along with physical activity outdoors, given that everyone is getting on the #stayhomestaysafe bandwagon (studies have shown our kids in Singapore get too much screen time).

To keep them safe, just continue to observe and guide your kids on MOH’s general advice as follows;
1) social distancing (eg when in the library)
2) avoid touching the face
3) wash hands thoroughly after leavig common areas, upon reaching home and before eating meals

Hope this helps😊
