Singapore's air quality dips briefly after 2 days of clearer skies

SINGAPORE — After two days of respite from the haze, Singapore’s air quality momentarily dipped again on Tuesday (Oct 10), with the 1-hr PM2.5 reading just crossing into the elevated range at 11am.

Air quality readings and advisories can be found on www.haze.gov.sg and the myENV app.

On Saturday, Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu said that Singapore has enough masks for use if the haze worsens.

“We have been planning for that,” she said when asked about preparations to make masks available. “I believe that we have sufficient stock for us. But of course, it’s always important to remember that we’re dealing with uncertain weather conditions.”

Ms Fu added that if necessary, Singapore will acquire more masks.

According to the interagency haze task force, N95 masks are not required for short exposure such as commuting from home to school or work. CNA
