A video emerged online showing a large group of people gathering illegally at the side of a basketball court.
Many of the people were seen in large groups, with one that was especially large – there were about 11 persons inside the group in the middle.
They were seen mingling around with each other while the other group was playing basketball.
“Group of 5” only kicks in on Monday
The video was purportedly taken earlier this week.
It is, however, worth noting that the easing of the social management restrictions where social gathering group sizes have been allowed up to 5 persons, will only kick on on Monday (22 November).
First-time offenders who breach safe distancing measures are fined $300.
For non-compliance with safe management measures under the COVID-19 offenders may be jailed for up to six months, fined up to S$10,000, or both.
If they are caught by the Police for not wearing a mask or not wearing a mask properly they can be charged under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020.
Penalties include a fine of up to SGD$10,000 and jailed for up to six months.
