From 13 October 2021, only groups of up to 2 fully vaccinated persons will be allowed to dine-in at hawker centres and coffee shops, and to enter shopping malls and attractions.

These measures will be implemented because epidemiological investigations show that F&B settings, retail establishments and shopping malls are frequently visited by a significant proportion of COVID-19 positive cases.

Individuals who do not meet the criteria will still be allowed to buy take-away food at hawker centres and coffee shops. There are no changes to the measures applied to other F&B establishments – only groups of 2 fully vaccinated persons are allowed to dine-in. Children aged 12 years and below, recovered individuals and unvaccinated individuals with a valid negative pre-event test result will be included in the group of 2.

Students aged 12 and below

Furthermore, Primary 1 to 6 students will be progressively brought back to schools for face-to-face lessons from 11 October 2021. Tuition and enrichment centres and Private Education Institutions may also resume face-to-face lessons from 11 October with Safe Management Measures in place.

For more information on the Safe Management Measures, please refer the table below or MOH’s press release.
