S'pore to ease Covid-19 rules in 2 phases: Group sizes upped to 5 from June 14; dining in to resume from June 21

SINGAPORE – People will be able to gather in groups of up to five from next Monday (June 14), as Singapore eases restrictions in two stages following a steady drop in the number of Covid-19 cases in the community.

Should the situation remain under control, a further relaxation of the rules – including permitting dining in at food and beverage outlets – may take place a week later, on June 21. This will mean that dining-in will not be allowed for Father’s Day, which falls on June 20.

But working from home will remain the default, the Health Ministry (MOH) said in a statement on Thursday (June 10). This is to reduce overall footfall and interaction at public areas in or near the workplace, as well as in public transport.

“Even as we progressively resume more activities, I urge everyone to remain vigilant,” said Trade and Industry Minister Gan Kim Yong, who co-chairs the task force tackling the pandemic. “We may continue to see a few cases every day, but that’s the nature of the virus. What we hope and aim to do is to keep the number low overall and avoid large clusters.”

The number of locally-transmitted Covid-19 cases has dropped significantly since Singapore put in place stricter measures last month, with just two community cases reported on Wednesday.
