Sg tightens COVID-19 safety measures; similar to Phase 2 but 'not a circuit breaker'
Notice the mention or stressed on dedicated facilities? Meaning to say previously some had alternative options possibly? Or perhaps there were some special cases that had alternative arrangements...

There cannot be exceptions when you want watertight control. And preemptive strikes are necessary to disrupt the infection chains and heighten the awareness and good practices. Best is tomorrow a few cases of enforcement where people get 10k fine or deported out of SG etc. The alertness and enforcement need stepping up.

"If we have to do another lockdown like last year's circuit breaker, it would be a major setback for our people and for our economic recovery. Let's not make it happen," PM Lee said in his televised address.

Here are the new restrictions:

Additional community measures will take effect from Saturday (May 8) to May 30, the multi-ministry task force on Covid-19 announced in a virtual press conference on Tuesday (May 4).

1. Social group sizes to be cut from eight to five people
Individuals are advised to keep to two or fewer social gatherings per day.

The number of unique visitors per household per day will also be reduced from eight to five.

2. Closure of high-risk settings, such as indoor gyms and indoor fitness studios
Indoor gyms and indoor fitness and health studios will be closed.

Outdoor organised exercise programmes and classes may still continue, limited to a class size of 30 attendees in total, with safe distancing measures. This includes group sizes of up to five people and a 3m distance between each group.

The task force will continue to monitor other higher-risk settings and activities, such as indoor sports halls, and personalised services, such as massages, spas and facials. If the community situation fails to improve, the task force will consider tightening restrictions further.

3. Workplace measures

Employers must ensure that no more than 50 per cent of employees who can work from home return to the workplace at any time, down from the current 75 per cent.

Employers should continue to stagger start times of employees who need to return to the workplace, and implement flexible working hours.

Social gatherings at the workplace should also be avoided. If social gatherings take place, they are subjected to a limit of five individuals.
