Temasek Foundation is offering the StayWell Mouth Gargle under its Stay Prepared
initiative to help everyone to stay safe, especially with the emergence of new and more infectious COVID-19 variants. The povidone-iodine (PVP-I) mouth gargle distributed during this exercise kills germs that cause sore throat.
As Singapore adapts to living with COVID-19 as an endemic infection, it is important for everyone to remain cautious and diligent in keeping ourselves and the community safe. Vaccinations and other measures like mask wearing help to reduce the spread of illnesses in our community.
The StayWell mouth gargle will be distributed in two tracks:
Register & Self-collect: All households who are interested can register online (from Monday, 15 November to Friday, 10 December 2021) to collect their mouth gargle, using their SP residential water bill account. The first round of self-collection will take place from Monday, 22 November to Sunday, 12 December 2021 across close to 40 designated collection points island-wide. Collection time slots are subject to availability and more will be made available after the Chinese New Year season should demand exceed expectations.
SingPost distribution: In addition to the mouth gargle above, SingPost will deliver one small bottle of mouth gargle to each letter box for 1 to 4-room HDB flats. Deliveries will be phased and made between Monday, 25 October and Friday, 19 November 2021. No action is required to receive the mouth gargle.
We are heartened by the overwhelming response to the previous distribution cycles and aim to further extend our support to the community during this time of need.
