By now, it seems like a monthly affair for government bodies to release adorable COVID-19-themed virtual stickers to bring a little cheer to our online interactions. First, we had this series of themed stickers from MCCY, and then we had Gov.sg’s “It’s A Wonderfood Life” sticker pack.
The latest addition to the party is the Safety Creatures sticker pack which features an adorable range of otter, cat, lion, and monkey characters that remind Singaporeans to keep safe as Circuit Breaker measures gradually ease up.
These stickers remind us to “mask up!” and keep at least a 1 metre distance from each other—yes, even when you’re chilling in the Singapore River, munching on seaweed.
Here, mama cat juggles working from home and looking after the kids while lion and friends engage in the all-too-familiar video call—which is quite frankly our only source of social interaction these days.
Celebrate our essential workers with these two stickers as they continue to go to work so that the rest of us are kept safe and so that life as we know it continues to go on.
Finally, remember to #tapauplease if you’re heading out to get food, and try to bring your own container as much as possible. As it is, Singaporeans have already generated way too much plastic waste during the Circuit Breaker period—let’s not contribute to it.
Don’t forget to include your elder loved ones in your virtual meet-ups as well, and be patient with them as they navigate technology for what may be their first time.
