SINGAPORE — Three food-and-beverage (F&B) outlets along Orchard Road have been ordered to shut — one of them for 30 days — for repeatedly breaching Covid-19 Covid-19 safety regulations, the authorities said on Tuesday (May 4).

The outlets — Club Peaches at Concorde Hotel and Shopping Mall, Alive@SG Pub at Lucky Plaza and Tangmen Restaurant at Orchard Plaza — were caught during enforcement checks by government agencies over the weekend.

A fourth outlet, Club Empire at Orchard Plaza, was also ordered to close for 10 days for its first offence of flouting safety regulations, the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) said in a statement.

Another 10 outlets across the island were fined between S$1,000 and S$2,000 each for offences including seating groups of customers less than 1m apart and allowing customers to play dice games.

Eleven individuals were also fined for breaking Covid-19 rules at F&B outlets, including two at Tekka Centre who were fined S$300 each for failing to wear a mask when they were not eating or drinking, despite repeated warnings from enforcement officers.

In addition, 63 individuals were fined at parks and beaches managed by the National Parks Board (NParks), for gathering in groups of more than eight and for entering areas closed off to the public.

MSE advised members of the public to check for crowds on the Safe Distance@Parks portal at safedistparks.nparks.gov.sg before heading to parks and to refer to the NParks website for the latest advisories for gardens, parks and nature reserves.

DISINFECTION OF PLACES VISITED BY TTSH CLUSTER CASES

Twenty-six public premises that were visited by cases linked to the growing Tan Tock Seng Hospital cluster while they were infectious have undergone deep cleaning and have been disinfected, MSE added.

“Officers from the National Environment Agency (NEA) were deployed to closely monitor the cleaning and disinfection works, to ensure that they were performed in accordance with NEA’s guidelines,” the ministry said.

MSE reminded all businesses to step up their cleaning standards and keep up good hygiene practices such as cleaning areas with high contact points more frequently.

“The resurgent waves of infection in overseas countries are sobering reminders of the potentially devastating threat posed by the pandemic,” it said.
