Safe distancing ambassadors to be scaled back, redeployed over time as COVID-19 restrictions ease: Lawrence Wong

If more people can uphold personal responsibility, then over a period of time, Singapore will “scale back” the number of people employed as safe distancing ambassadors, he said.

This will allow these people to be redeployed in other sectors for which there are “huge demands for manpower”, said Mr Wong.

Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said that while the demand for safe distancing ambassadors will fall, many of the operational staff in the health sector doing jobs like vaccinations, contact tracing and at call centres are from the aviation sector.

“We expect them to return to their posts very soon as our borders open. So some redeployment opportunities will be available and we’ll continue to explore other opportunities that we can place the SDAs,” he said.

“But having said that, as mentioned by Minister Lawrence Wong, we are going through a tight labour market and there are actually vacancies in various sectors as well.”
