More checks over festive period

Christmas is coming but Covid-19 measures are here to stay.

Starting this weekend, there will be more checks on food and beverage (F&B) outlets to ensure compliance with safe management measures over the festive period, said the Sustainability and the Environment Ministry (MSE) yesterday.

The increased surveillance will extend over the next few weeks.

“While we recognise that many may wish to meet up with family and friends during the festive period, food and beverage outlets and the public must continue to take safe management measures seriously, as dining out is an activity that involves considerable risks, ” said the ministry.

“Firm enforcement action will be taken if breaches are found.”

Under the Covid-19 regulations, social gatherings in groups of more than five outside an individual’s residence are prohibited in phase two.

The MSE also reminded the public that alcohol should not be served or consumed at premises past 10.30pm, and that the current group size limit of five people will apply until phase three takes effect from Dec 28. — The Straits Times/ANN
