Six men and one woman, aged between 30 and 52, will be charged in court on June 2, 2020 for contravention of the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020, the Urban Redevelopment Authority said in a statement on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

This latest group of violators brought before the courts pertains to an incident two weeks ago on May 16, where groups of people were observed gathering at various places in the Robertson Quay area.

URA and the Singapore Police Force have been investigating the matter.

URA said in its statement that it urges both the public and business operators to continue to play their part in adhering to the safe distancing measures that have been put in place to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Minister for environment and water resources, Masagos Zulkifli, also posted about the action that has been taken:
