Singapore Tourism Board prepares for calibrated and safe resumption of B2B events.
A risk management framework has been developed for business events of up to 50 attendees, based on strict safe management measures.
Under the framework, the event organisers are required to achieve the following measures:
– Infection control measures to be in place from pre- to post-event for event attendee
– Limits on crowd density
– Limits on close contacts between individuals
– Ensuring a safe and clean environment
– Preparing for emergencies relating to COVID-19
The country transitioned into Phase 2 of reopening.
Phase Two will see the resumption of most activities, subject to the following safe distancing principles, apart from a small list of exceptions.
  • Businesses that are permitted to resume operations do not need to apply for an exemption before resuming operations but are required to submit the number of workers who are working on-site via the GoBusiness portal within two weeks of the date of resumption of on-site operations.
  • Individuals are to maintain safe distancing of at least 1m at all times. Small-group social gatherings are allowed, up to five persons.
  • Retail businesses may reopen physical outlets.
  • Impact on Food Supply Chain
  • Food and beverage establishments that predominantly selling beverages can resume business and dine-in services are allowed.
  • For dine-in and group gathering, the 1m safe distancing requirement may be waived only if each group is made up of not more than five persons. The sales and consumption of alcohol in all food establishments will be prohibited after 2230hrs daily.
