Social distancing measures in business establishments retained until Aug. 24
Bars and pubs will still need to operate at 75% capacity.
The government said it will extend the implementation of the existing social distancing measures in business establishments until 24 August.
This means that bars and pubs will still need to operate at 75% capacity, maintain a four-person per table rule, and prohibit live performance and dancing activities.
“All patrons of bars/pubs must continue to present proof of a negative RAT result obtained within 24 hours before entering the relevant premises. Otherwise, they should be denied entry,” the government said.
For catering establishments, the maximum number of persons per table will be capped at eight, whilst only 120 guests can be allowed in a banquet. Catering establishments will also not be allowed to operate or sell food and drinks from 12:00 am to 4:59 am.
“Operators of catering premises and bars/pubs are required to use the latest QR Code Verification Scanner mobile application provided by the Government to scan the QR code of a patron's vaccination record, medical exemption certificate or recovery record,” the government said.
