non Finance, non loan, non property, non banking, non credit card
Earlier today the Multi-Ministry Task Force announced that all F &B Dine-in will be prohibited from July 22 to August 18.
Lawrence Wong said that these measures will be reviewed again after two weeks. He said “please stay home” to minimise social interactions.
Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong said dining in will not be allowed in this period.
Mr Gan said: “We know that this news is extremely disappointing and frustrating to many, in particular for businesses in sectors such as F&B. These sectors have been very badly hit given the earlier restrictions, and have been working very hard to adapt to the changing regulations.”
Returning to Phase 2
The group size will be reduced from five to two and implementing mandatory SafeEntry check-in at hawker centres and wet markets.
Services that require the mask will also be restricted such as facials or saunas
Maximum event size down from 250 pax to 100 pax and there is a need for pre-event testing.
The Ministry said:
“Unlike the KTV cluster, which had spread first amongst younger population segments, the current wave of infection affects a wider spectrum of the population including many seniors. At the current rate of transmission, it is likely that infection cases will rise sharply, and many people in the community will catch the virus.”
Mr Gan added that this announcement will be “a huge setback” to those who are following to rules to keep the country safe and they are appreciated. Once the vaccination rates are higher and the clusters controlled Singapore will start reopening again.
