TraceTogether App or Token only
Starting with cinemas from 26 October (Mon), checking in to cinema halls catch the latest films will strictly be by TraceTogether app or token.
Examples of cinemas in Singapore include Golden Village and Cathay Cineplexes.
The new measure, however, will be rolled out progressively and cinema operators will have to comply and fully implement TraceTogether by 16 November this year.
For those without a smartphone, TraceTogether tokens can also be used to check in to venues including cinemas. They are now free to collect for all local residents at Community Centres/Clubs or TraceTogether Mobile Booths located around Singapore.
Here’s how the token looks like.
If you have no idea how to use the TraceTogether app or token, here are a couple of video guides to explain.
