Dine-in restrictions in Singapore
Who can I dine in with?
You are able to dine in a group of two from Monday (19 July) to 8 August 2021. This is the maximum number of people in a group that will be allowed to dine in for unvaccinated individuals.
I'm fully vaccinated. Can I dine out in groups?
Yes, if you are fully vaccinated, you will be able to dine out in groups of five with other fully vaccinated people. According to MOH, you will be considered fully vaccinated if you have received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine. People who have recovered from Covid-19 are also deemed to be at lower risk and can dine out in groups of up to five.
I'm not fully vaccinated. Can I dine out in groups?
The Ministry of Health (MOH) also said that unvaccinated people with a valid negative pre-event test (PET) result may join the groups of five. Eateries will implement systems to check the status of each individual who is dining at the establishment.
Where can I dine in?
All eateries will follow the regulations except hawker centres, food courts and coffee shops
, where group sizes will still be limited to only two people at these venues. This is due to the more "porous setting" and the lack of mandatory SafeEntry check-ins.
Can I exercise outside in groups?
For those who want to exercise, outdoor activities and indoor (mask-on) activities can continue in groups of five. However, indoor high-intensity mask-off activities will be limited to groups of two.
We hope this answers any questions you might have had about dining in Singapore right now, and hopefully, the situation returns to normalcy and we hope things get better soon! ?
