The Ministry of Sustainability and Environment (MSE) said on 13 May that 6 people who were not fully vaccinated, have been caught dining at hawker centres, and will each be fined $300, according to CNA.
Random spot checks were conducted at some F&B outlets between 26 April to 9 May for the diners’ vaccination status.
The National Environment Agency and Singapore Food Agency deployed enforcement officers to conduct more than 20,000 selective spot checks at the establishments during that period.
More than 1,450 checks were done each day at just those two venues.
The diners are supposed to show their vaccination status on the TraceTogether app or scan their token when the officers approach them for spot checks.
Non-fully vaccinated persons are not allowed to dine in at hawker centres and coffeeshops, although VDS has since been removed from April 26 – except for F&B outlets, nightlife establishments where there is dancing, and events with more than 500 participants.
