Top News Singapore to ease Covid-19 restrictions in two phases from June 14 By TTG Asia / Posted on 11 June, 2021 12:54 Singapore will allow people to gather in groups of five, up from two persons, from June 14, as the country moves to ease restrictions in two phases following a decline in the number of Covid-19 community cases. In addition, households will be able to host five distinct visitors per day, up from two, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) in a statement on Thursday (June 10). However, citizens are still advised to limit the number of social gatherings to no more than two a day to reduce the risk of transmission. Attractions in Singapore such as Gardens by the Bay (above) will be allowed to double their capacity from June 14 As part of the first phase of Singapore’s reopening on June 14, attractions, cruises, museums and public libraries will also be allowed to increase their operating capacity limits from the current 25 per cent to 50 per cent. The size limits for cinemas and events such as MICE, live performances, spectator sports, congregational and worship services, and marriage solemnisations will also be increased to 250 attendees with pre-event testing. Testing will not be required for events with 50 or fewer attendees. Should the situation remain under control, dining-in at F&B establishments will also be allowed to resume from June 21, under the second phase of the reopening. Wedding receptions will also be allowed to resume with up to 100 attendees with pre-event testing required for all attendees. For wedding receptions up to 50 attendees, testing is required only for all members of the wedding party (of up to 20 attendees including the wedding couple). Gyms and fitness studios may also resume indoor mask-off sports activities, with indoor and outdoor sports classes to be capped at 30 persons. Meanwhile, work-from-home will remain the default arrangement.
