RESTRICTIONS STILL IN PLACE
On 19 May, Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced the gradual resumption of businesses in a phased approach from 2 June onwards.
- The government will be opening up the economy and allow for businesses and activities to resume gradually over three phases.
- The first phase starts on 2 June and includes additional permitted services that are permitted to operate.
- Businesses that have obtained permit to operate during Circuit Breaker can continue to do so after 1 June. Businesses that can resume from 2 June onwards do not need to apply for exemption but must submit manpower details within two weeks from the date of operations resumption.
- Businesses are required to comply with the mandatory Safe Management Measures.
- The government is also looking into gradually reopen borders for travel and is exploring the possibility of piloting green lane arrangements with a few countries that are at equivalent or lower risk of community transmission as Singapore to allow for essential travel.
IMPACT ON FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN
- F&B outlets (excluding establishments selling predominantly beverages), food caterers and canteens are permitted to operate. No dine-in services are allowed.
