DEFER NON-ESSENTIAL TRIPS TO MALLSOn Saturday, Singapore authorities urged people in a WhatsApp message to stay at home and only visit malls for essentials, like food.This comes a day after large crowds were seen outside malls, as mall operators implemented stricter safe-distancing measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
The Government also called on foreign workers and foreign domestic workers to stay in on their rest days and avoid gathering in public spaces, and reminded Singaporeans to stay 1m away from each other, and to avoid gathering in public spaces and visiting crowded areas.
Stiffer regulations that came into effect at 11.59pm on Thursday introduced jail terms and fines for individuals, event organisers and owners of premises who flout safe-distancing measures, as stipulated by the COVID-19 multi-ministry taskforce.READ: Jail terms, fines for those who breach COVID-19 safe-distancing rules, stay-home notice
Under the new measures, gatherings outside of work or school have to be limited to 10 people, who must maintain 1m distance from each other. This applies to settings where"interactions are non-transient", like shopping centres, supermarkets and restaurants.
Owners of premises and event organisers have to ensure that non-fixed seating is at least 1m away from any other seat at all times. If seats are fixed to the floor, owners have to ensure that customers sit only on alternate seats.Where queues form at public places, such as retail stores and supermarkets, individuals have to stand a metre apart from each other.
Businesses owners and event organisers who ignore these regulations may be jailed up to six months, fined up to S$10,000 or both. Read more: CNA »
Stupid question but are we not suppose to be flattening the curve ? Why is case 746 , a 38 yo male warded KKH? I didn’t know KKH also take male patients. The main issue is at the unknown links cases. Means there are possible infecteds who are not treated and running around 67 unlinked cases wow. I’m worry for secondary school kids who mostly travel by public transport
We might be at the beginning of a very long fight. Stay vigilant and start taking action to help stop the spread: - Hand hygiene - Social distancing - Stay home unless visiting a doctor (call first) or for essentials - Dining, surface & clothing hygiene at home Image:SiouxsieW Government can just implement a partial-lockdown Singapore for 2 weeks first to see how it goes. I mean it doesn't has to be a total lockdown. Partially/ selectively. I'm, and everyone of us are very worry now as the curve is moving up shapely especially those unlinked cases.😳
Singapore’s lockdown and school closing denialism backfires. Remember: That’s how Italy, Austria, suisse, Spain and Germany started. Kids are touching their faces all the time!!!! I know that. 200 times per hour. Why schools are open? Praying it won't getting worst. The moment announced Dorscon Orange and Malaysia announced MoveMent Restriction Order only , singapore supermarkets like Mental Health Hospital liao , sia suay lang , 丢脸
If u want lockdown , hope more play punk , then guarantee lock down , if all discipline , just got to wait . U guys like to see Singapore supermarkets full of sia suay zombies buyin toilet rolls ah LOL I think it's the best time to isolate while the numbers are still manageable. It will be a bigger problem if it rises some more.
Not Cool man.. Im perpare lock the city down. What is the gov waiting for...
