On Wednesday (July 7), the Multi-ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced updates to the safe management measures (SMMs) in Singapore's current Phase 3 (Heightened Alert).

Indoor mask-off activities in gyms and fitness studios

From July 12, 2021, gyms and fitness studios can conduct indoor mask-off sports or exercise activities in group sizes of up to five persons.

This is similar to indoor mask-on and outdoor activities.

Sports and exercise classes can continue in groups of no more than five persons, in classes of up to 50 persons including the instructor, or the capacity limit of the venue, whichever is lower.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) said in a press release that SportSG will be providing more details on this.

Wedding receptions

Wedding receptions can also resume from July 12, 2021, with no more than 250 persons allowed with pre-event testing (PET).

For wedding receptions with 50 persons or less, PET will be required for the wedding party only.

As wedding receptions are higher-risk activities where attendees tend to socialise more and over a longer period of time, attendees must adhere to all other SMMs to reduce the risk of transmission.
