Phase 2 Heightened Alert from May 16 through June 13
Dining in at F & B establishments will not be allowed. This includes hawker centres and food courts, both indoors and outdoors.
The current size of group gatherings allowed will be reduced from five people to two people, following a spike in Covid 19 community cases, said co-chair of the multi-ministry task force Lawrence Wong on Friday, May 14.
This, and other new measures under what the Health Ministry labelled as "Phase 2 Heightened Alert" will take effect from May 16 through June 13.
Speaking at a mult-ministry task force press conference on Friday, Mr Wong said: "This will apply across the board, so if you want to go out for anything, grocery shopping, exercise, maximum of two persons henceforth."
"In fact, we strongly encourage everyone to stay home as much as possible, go out only for essential reasons."
"We will do a review at the midway point, meaning two weeks after the measures have been implemented, and at that point, we will look at the prevailing public health situation and see if there's a need to adjust the measures further," said Mr Wong, who is also Education Minister.
Working from home will also be the default at workplaces, he added. "All employees who are able to work from home will have to do so. Work-from-home will be the default."
So it will be back to homecooked food, dabao and Grab food for me during this period.
Actually I was expecting this to happen, seeing the spike in community cases recently, so more or less I am prepared.
However, shopping malls will still be opened during this period.
