Since the dining ban was lifted on August 10 at F&B establishments, some eateries have turned to the use of stickers to tell vaccinated customers (who’re permitted to sit down and have a meal) apart from unvaccinated ones (who can only tapow and leave). 

In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s a summary of the rules as stated by the Ministry of Health: everyone is able to dine in at hawker centres and coffee shops (kopitiams) in up to groups of two, regardless of vaccination status. But only fully vaccinated folks can eat in up to groups of five at restaurants or food courts (since most food courts are in enclosed, air-conditioned spaces). Folks who have recovered from Covid-19 and have obtained a valid pre-event test exemption notice (a hard copy notice obtained from clinics on this list), possess a negative pre-event test result from a Ministry of Health-approved test provider within the last 24 hours, or children aged 12 and below from the same household, can also dine in at all F&B establishments in up to groups of five. Unvaccinated customers are still able to enter any restaurant — as long as they’re only ordering food for takeaway.
