Covid-19 regulations breach: 22 F&B outlets ordered to close, 11 fined

JC Infinite at Concorde Hotel and Shopping Mall was ordered to shut temporarily for breaking safe distancing rules.

SINGAPORE — A total of 22 food-and-beverage (F&B) outlets have been ordered to shut and 11 outlets have been fined for breaching various Covid-19 safety regulations, the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) said in a press release on Wednesday (Dec 15).

The businesses were found to have broken various rules such as failing to ensure that customers adhere to the permitted group size of five, failing to ensure a safe distance of at least 1 metre between groups of customers, allowing music videos to be played within premises and offences related to mask-wearing.

The outlets found in breach were ordered to shut for up to 30 days or fined S$1,000 each.

In addition to these, 31 people have also been fined since Dec 1 for breaking Covid-19 regulations at F&B outlets. 

MSE said that government agencies will be stepping up enforcement at F&B outlets for the year-end festive period.

Separately, the particulars of 40 people were recorded from Dec 1 to 13 this year in parks and beaches managed by the National Parks Board (NParks), after they gathered in groups larger than the permitted limit.

In one such case, NParks will be taking enforcement actions against a group of 22 people who were found playing football at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.

All campsites and barbecue pits in NParks-managed parks and gardens remain closed and NParks will temporarily close access to some parks, facilities and sections of lawns when these areas get too crowded or when users do not comply with the safety rules, MSE said.

The ministry reminded everyone to exercise socially responsible behaviour during this period when there is the emerging threat of the Omicron coronavirus strain and urged seniors to stay home and avoid crowded spaces over the next few weeks.
