Coffee shops, canteens to have new options to allow for groups of up to 5 vaccinated diners: Amy Khor

A sign reminding visitors that only two vaccinated persons are allowed to dine together at T&D 136 Coffeeshop on Jan 17, 2022.

From Monday (March 7), canteens and coffee shops here will have three options to accommodate groups of up to five people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to dine in at these eateries while also facilitating vaccination checks.

For these eateries, vaccination-differentiated safe management measures (VDS) can be implemented based on area, time or both.

For area-bound VDS, coffee shops and canteens can cordon off a specific area, with access control and vaccination checks, to allow for groups of up to five people to dine in.

Time-bound measures, meanwhile, will allow for coffee shops and canteens to have groups of up to five people dining in at stipulated timings between 5pm and 10.30pm daily, with access controls and vaccination checks implemented during these times.

The final option will see coffee shops and canteens adopt both area and time-specific measures for groups of five to dine in, if they cordon off a specific area along with implementing access control and vaccination status checks during the stipulated timings between 5pm and 10.30pm daily.
