This is to minimise interactions among people in general.

Families that go for staycation in Singapore the next four weeks can gather as a group inside the hotel room, but once outside of it, they must not be in groups of more than two persons at a time.

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said on May 17 that families need to disperse into groups of two in line with the tightened Covid-19 measures in public spaces.

STB added in response to media queries that these guests on staycation will not mingle with members of the public when they are in their rooms, which is to highlight the consistency of rules applied across the board that are meant to reduce interactions among people in Singapore.

Hotel guests can only order takeaway food to be eaten in the rooms or have food delivered to them.

Singapore on Sunday entered Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) amid a rise in Covid-19 cases, with some cases that have not been traced to any previous infections.

New restrictions that kicked in since May 16 will last until June 13. 

STB had said on Friday that no more than two people can gather on any given day in a hotel room or in rooms connected by an adjoining door.

Only family members who have the same address on their identity cards can do so.

Guests who have made hotel bookings between May 16 and June 13 may postpone their booking or ask for a refund.
