Safe Distancing Measures

Gradual Resumption of Business Activities in Phases

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced on 19 May that Singapore would exit the Circuit Breaker from 2 June and will embark on a controlled approach to resume activities safely over three phases.

From 02 June 2020 onwards, Phase One (Safe Re-Opening) will be implemented. Economic activities that do not pose high risk of transmission will resume first, while social, economic and entertainment activities that carry higher risks will remain closed. Dining-in at F&B premises will be continued to be disallowed and F&B outlets in parks as well as standalone outlets selling predominantly beverages are to remain closed.

On 15 June, the MTF announced that Phase 2 (Safe Transition) will commence on 19 June. Apart from a short list of exceptions, Phase 2 will see the resumption of most activities, including the reopening of food and beverage (F&B) establishments selling predominantly beverages and resumption of dine-in services.

To provide a safe environment for customers and workers, F&B establishments currently in operation, and those that will reopen in Phase 2, must implement Safe Management Measures, as required by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and comply with the COVID19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations.

Refer to our Advisory for Phase 2 Re-opening of Food & Beverage Establishments for more information.
