Wearing a mask will continue to be the default, said co-chair of the task force Lawrence Wong.
However, in settings with masks on, safe distancing will no longer be required although it is encouraged, he added.
Safe distancing is still a must when masks are not worn, said Mr Wong, and the required distance will be fixed at 1m for all settings.
For event sizes, they will be set based on the capacity of the venue.
Specific size limits for events like religious services, business events, funerals, solemnisations, wedding receptions and mask-on classes will be lifted, said MOH.
Zoning requirements will also be removed, since the “main protection” is through masks and COVID-19 vaccination, it added.
For settings or events with 1,000 people or fewer, these can proceed without being subject to any capacity limits, said the Health Ministry.
But for large events and settings with more than 1,000 people, a capacity limit of 50 per cent will be imposed “as a precaution” due to “greater infection risks”, the ministry added.
These include attractions, cruises, MICE and large work-related events, as well as large performing arts venues and sports stadiums.
At the workplace, the current arrangement of allowing up to 50 per cent of employees who can work from home to return to the office will continue, said Mr Wong.
As announced by the task force previously, the rules for social gatherings will now apply to workplaces and other social settings, as long as general group size and masking rules are adhered to, said MOH.
“As economic activities pick up, we will also remove the specific restriction on cross-deployment of employees across workplaces, although employers may continue to do so for business continuity reasons,” the ministry added.
