SINGAPORE — A 53-year-old woman is under probe for allegedly being a public nuisance and breaching safe distancing regulations at Marina Bay Sands (MBS), the police said on Saturday (May 15).

The police received a call at 5.14pm on Saturday for assistance at 1 Bayfront Avenue, where the woman had allegedly entered the building without wearing a face mask despite repeated advice from a safe distancing ambassador to do so.

“The woman is believed to be involved in other similar instances where she entered various buildings and establishments without a mask,” the police said.

Clips of what appeared to be the incident at MBS had been widely circulated on social media and messaging applications on Saturday, along with other purported similar incidents involving the woman.  

Anyone found to be not wearing a mask or not wearing a mask properly outside their place of residence and in breach of Regulation 3A of the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020 can be fined up to S$10,000 or jailed up to six months, or both.

Those who are guilty of being a public nuisance under Section 290 of the Penal Code can be jailed up to three months or fined up S$2,000, or both.

“Members of the public are advised to take the prevailing safe distancing measures seriously and cooperate with safe distancing ambassadors,” the police said.
