Gov’t further eases distance measures for catering business, scheduled premises
Starting 3 November, restrictions on the operating and dine-in hours will be lifted.
The government has eased three measures related to catering business and scheduled premises.
From 3 November, the restriction on the operating and dine-in hours for catering business premises and scheduled premises under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation will be lifted.
Patrons will also be allowed not to wear their masks during photo-taking on stage at events held at catering business premises, premises where events are held, and other scheduled premises. Mask-wearing, however, will still be required to other parts of the premises and during time apart from photo-taking.
Lastly, the government will also reopen the barbecue sites it manages.
The government said the move was done as the city’s situation remained stable. The city also has not recorded a marked increase amid the emergence of new mutant strains.
