Covid-19 has changed the way we work, play and eat. For F&B owners, the upheaval has been particularly capricious — when the circuit breaker started on April 7 and they were required to stop dine-in service, they scrambled to set up new systems overnight for takeaway and delivery. And now, they have to grapple with reopening for dine-in customers again, as Singapore gradually restarts its economy post-circuit breaker’s Phase 2 on June 19.

The government’s upcoming “safe transition” period will see more businesses — including F&B outlets — reopening with “safe management measures, group size and capacity limits in place”. Groups of no more than five pax will be allowed for communal dining in public, while dining groups have to maintain a distance of at least one metre apart, with no mixing of groups. Alcohol sales and consumption will also have to cease at 10.30pm, and live music, TV and video screenings are prohibited in F&B spaces.
