Stricter safe distancing regulations from the Ministry of Health (MOH) have kicked in today (Mar 27), in an effort to combat the Covid-19 pandemic in Singapore.
Gatherings outside of school or work must have no more than 10 people, and people must maintain a distance of one metre from each other in these "non-transient settings". Anyone who fails to do so could face a fine of up to $10,000 or a jail term of up to six months, or both.
Entertainment venues like clubs, bars and cinemas are closed from Mar 27 to Apr 30. Enrichment activities or tuition classes for children below 18 years old are also banned in the same period. While malls, museums, gyms and restaurants may still operate, they have to restrict operating capacity to no more than one person per 16sqm of space.
Here's what went down today when the new measures kicked in islandwide.
