From June 14, 2022, nightlife establishments in Singapore, where there is dancing among patrons, will no longer have a capacity limit. Patrons also do not need to obtain a negative antigen rapid test (ART) result to enter the venue as long as they are fully vaccinated.
This move by the Ministry of Health (MOH) will “rationalise the rules” for nightspots with other social settings.
However, operators are still required to conduct checks on safe management measures to ensure that only fully-vaccinated people enter their premises – enforcement officers may carry out random checks to ensure that operators comply.
All businesses were given the go-ahead to fully reopen from April 19 after more than two years of restrictions. However, nightlife businesses still had group size limits as dancing among patrons was considered a higher-risk activity.
MOH said that indoor mask-wearing will continue to be required as a “key line of defence” against community transmission, despite the removal of most Covid-19 safe management measures.
