SINGAPORE — An initial group of 11 hawker centres and seven coffee shops have put in place the necessary vaccination checks at access points and they will therefore be able to have up to five vaccinated customers dining together on their premises from Tuesday (Nov 23), the National Environment Agency (NEA) and Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said on Saturday (Nov 20).

The 11 hawker centres are:

  • Bedok Food Centre
  • Beo Crescent Market
  • Geylang Serai Market
  • Holland Village Market & Food Centre
  • Market Street Interim Food Centre
  • Sembawang Hills Food Centre
  • Tiong Bahru Market
  • Kampung Admiralty Hawker Centre
  • Ci Yuan Hawker Centre
  • Hawker Centre@Our Tampines Hub
  • Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre

The seven coffee shops are:

  • Barfood & Co at 1 Cantonment Road
  • Goodyear Restaurant Enterprise at 15 Tampines Avenue
  • Qi Yiang at 973 Upper Serangoon Road
  • B4RI at 362 Tanjong Katong Road
  • The Patio at 1018 Sembawang Road
  • Satay By The Bay at Gardens By The Bay
  • Makansutra Gluttons Bay at Esplanade Mall

Patrons of these establishments can either show the personnel manning the access points the vaccination verification on the TraceTogether mobile application, or provide their TraceTogether token to be scanned to determine their vaccination status. 

At hawker centres, fully vaccinated or eligible persons will be given a sticker to identify them so that they will be allowed to have their meals there, while those who are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated can only buy food to take away. 

Individual stallholders will not need to check patrons’ vaccination status.

The remaining hawker centres are expected to similarly have entry checks in place and also be permitted to have groups of up to five vaccinated persons eating there by Nov 30, NEA and SFA said. 

In the meantime, the restriction of up to two fully vaccinated persons to have meals on these premises will continue to apply for the remaining hawker centres.

Similarly, other coffee shops can come onboard and allow groups of up to five to eat together when they have put in place the necessary control measures, the agencies said.

To do so, the coffee shops must control access to their premises by cordoning off areas and have dedicated entry points. 

Operators should also ensure that access to common areas, such as the five-foot walkways in front of certain coffee shops, are not obstructed.

At the entry points, the coffee shops must check the vaccination status of all patrons, and differentiate patrons who are fully vaccinated and eating there.
