In a press conference on June 10, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced that the size limit for social gatherings will be increased from two to five persons.
This is among measures in a calibrated reopening that will take place from Monday (June 14) onwards, as Singapore moves to Phase 3 (Heightened Alert).
Social gathering size
This increase in social gathering size from two to five also means that staycation groups will be allowed to have groups of up to five pax (except where individuals are all from the same household, and also subject to the room’s maximum capacity).
Apart from social group gathering size, the cap of two distinct visitors per household per day will also be increased to five.
However, to reduce the likelihood of transmission, everyone is urged to continue to limit their social circle to a small group of regular contacts.
Social gatherings should also be limited to no more than two a day.
On the vaccination front, Singapore Citizens aged 12–39 years old will also be able to register and book for vaccination appointments from June 11 onwards.
Work from home will still remain as the default arrangement.
If the situation remains under control, there will be a further re-opening from June 21 onwards, which includes the resumption of F&B dine-in.
From June 21, gyms and fitness studios may also resume indoor mask-off sports activities, with safe distancing of at least 2 metres between persons and at least 3 metres between groups of up to five persons.
