Streamlined Covid-19 safe management measures (SMMs), which had previously been postponed, will now be implemented in Singapore from March 15, 2022.
The multi-ministry task force (MTF) made this announcement in a press conference on Friday (March 11), as reported by CNA.
The simplified SMMs will focus on five important areas:
- Group sizes
- Safe distancing
- Workplace requirements
- Capacity limits
According to CNA and The Straits Times, from March 15, a maximum of five people are allowed per group for social gatherings.
The maximum number of visitors per household will be adjusted from five people per day, to five at any one time.
Mask-wearing and safe distancing
Wearing of masks will continue to be compulsory for all.
In settings with masks on, safe distancing will no longer be required, although it is encouraged.
For all settings without masks, safe distancing is mandatory.
Up to 50 per cent of employees who can work from home will be allowed to return to the office.
The rules for social gatherings will also apply to workplaces.
Specific size limits for events like religious services, funerals, solemnisations, wedding receptions and mask-on classes will be lifted.
Zoning requirements will also be removed.
However, a 50 per cent capacity limit will be set for large events and settings with more than 1,000 people.
