Safe Management Measures

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced on 14 May 2021 that safe management measures will be further tightened to reduce the risk of COVID-19 community spread, with effect from 16 May through 13 June 2021.

To provide a safe environment for all customers and workers, F&B establishments, retail establishments and lifestyle-related services currently in operation must implement safe management measures, as required by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), and comply with the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations.

The following safe management measures, which include the earlier safe distancing measures, are for:

 

Food & Beverage (F&B) Establishments

F&B establishments are required to comply with the measures set out by Enterprise Singapore (ESG), Housing & Development Board (HDB), Singapore Food Agency (SFA), Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) below. The information in this advisory supersedes that in previous advisories or statements.

F&B establishments are to comply with the following from 16 May through 13 June 2021:

  • All F&B establishments can only open for takeaway and/or delivery during this period. Dining-in is not permitted; this includes home-based private dining businesses.
    • While customers and delivery personnel are allowed to enter the premises of the F&B establishments for takeaway or delivery, they must leave the premises once they have picked up their orders.
    • During this period, F&B establishments should cancel all events and promotions that will generate crowding at their physical premises in a manner which is non-compliant with the safe management measures.
  • Employees of F&B establishments may consume their meals at the F&B premise1. However, the establishment must ensure that the following safe management measures are observed:
    • Designate and clearly demarcate a dining area for employees only. The designated area should be out of public view wherever possible.
    • Stagger employees’ meal times.
    • Employees must dine alone and keep a distance of at least one metre from any other individual. They should refrain from interacting with other individuals.
    • Employees should dine quickly and leave the designated dining area in a clean state after they have consumed their meals.
    • Employees must wear their masks as soon as they have finished eating or drinking.
    • Coffeeshop and food court stall operators may consume their meals at the tables in front of their stalls. They should also adhere to the measures stated above.

F&B establishments may serve as venues for wedding solemnisations and/or work-related events by third parties and are required to comply with the safe management measures for these events2. However, as wedding receptions are not allowed, food and drinks are not permitted to be served at wedding solemnisations. Food and drinks are also not allowed at work-related events.

1 This includes all F&B establishments such as those in shopping malls, industrial estates, coffeeshops and hawker centres. Malls may designate spaces for mall employees to consume their meals, but all the guidelines above must be adhered to.
2 Refer to the advisory at the GoBusiness portal for the safe management measures on Marriage Solemnisations and Wedding Receptions/
  • Work-related events (both non customer-facing and customer-facing3) can be held within the workplace premise and third-party venues. Prevailing guidelines for the respective event venues will apply.
    • Events held in F&B establishments are subject to a cap of 50 persons or a lower number, depending on venue capacity and safe distancing requirements.
    • At least one-metre spacing between individuals must be maintained at all times.
    • Food and drinks are not allowed.
    • Prevailing safe management measures as indicated in MOM’s Requirements for Safe Management Measures at the workplace4 continue to apply.
    • Events organised by F&B establishments within their own F&B premises are subject to the maximum number of individuals that the venue may accommodate after safe distancing measures are adhered to.
    • Events organised by external parties at F&B establishments (where the F&B premise now function as a third-party venue) are subject to a cap of 50 persons (excluding service staff) or a lower number, depending on venue capacity and safe distancing requirements.
    • Food and drinks are not allowed.
    • Each group must be limited to a maximum of 2 persons, with at least one-metre spacing between groups.
    • Food fairs are not permitted.
    • All other prevailing workplace and venue safe management measures must be adhered to.
  • Such events are still not permitted at public and common areas such as mall atriums, public transport nodes, HDB estates and common corridors.
3 Non customer-facing events include conferences, seminars, corporate retreats, etc, while customer-facing events include product launches, F&B establishment openings, marketing/branding events etc. Social and recreational gatherings (e.g. farewell lunch, team bonding activity) at the workplace are disallowed.
4 Refer to MOM’s Requirements for Safe Management Measures at the Workplace.

The following measures apply to all customer-facing operations of F&B establishments:

  • Clearly demarcate queue lines, put up signage to guide customers on where to queue to order and collect food, and ensure at least one-metre spacing between customers.
  • Demarcate a waiting area for customers and delivery personnel to pick up their food.
  • Implement pre-ordering and pre-payment solutions where possible to minimise physical clustering of customers waiting to place or pick up their orders.
  • Encourage the use of self-checkouts, cashless or contactless payment methods to reduce contact between employees and customers.
  • Implement contactless pick-up of food where possible to minimise interactions.
  • Ensure that customers and delivery personnel observe at least one-metre spacing at all times and do not cluster together.
  • Radio broadcasts, all forms of television, film and video screenings5 and the provision or allowance of other forms of public entertainment activities such as live music, dancing and singing (by employees or customers), amusement devices, darts, billiards, pool, snooker, karaoke, gambling and/or gaming instruments (e.g. dice, mahjong tiles, playing cards)6 in the F&B premises are not permitted.
  • Recorded music, speech and sounds may be played, but only as soft background music7. This must not be louder than 60 decibels. As a gauge, this would be the sound level of a regular conversation.
  • Common play areas for children/toddlers/infants in F&B establishments8 must be closed.
5 Except for advisory videos related to safe management measures. Static images and a carousel of static images on a digital screen (e.g. of menus and promotional items) without sound are not considered to be TV/video screenings.
6 The list of gaming instruments is as stated in the Common Gaming House (Instruments and Appliances for Gaming) Rules.
7 If there is an employee assisting with playing the recorded music, there must be no live interaction with customers or the use of microphones and turntables for the mixing of music. He/she should, for instance, not be positioned on an elevated platform or in a dedicated booth for the purpose of performance, or which could resemble a performance.
8 These play areas refer to the facilities provided free of charge in the establishments.
  • As dine-in services are not allowed, F&B establishments are not required to implement SafeEntry for customers. However, all F&B establishments must require their employees and vendors to do SafeEntry check-in, and transit to TraceTogether-only SafeEntry when this is implemented from 17 May 2021. Refer to Annex A for details on the implementation of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry.
  • From 15 June 2021, F&B establishments required to deploy SafeEntry for customers and visitors will need to provide the SafeEntry Gateway9(SEGW) as an option for SafeEntry check-in. SEGW is available as a feature within the SafeEntry (Business) App (updated to version 1.1.0 and above) and as a physical standalone device (SEGW Box). These F&B establishments may apply for a free SEGW Box10.
9 The SEGW enables contactless detection of both the TraceTogether App and Token, and serves as an additional means of SafeEntry check-in that is quicker and more seamless. It also allows users to check if their Token has run out of battery or is not working.
10 Refer to go.gov.sg/gateway-overview for how to implement the SEGW and apply for a free SEGW Box.
  • F&B establishments must ensure that all employees, customers, delivery personnel and other onsite personnel wear their masks properly at all times. Employees who are eating or drinking onsite must wear their masks immediately after doing so.
  • F&B establishments must ensure that common spaces and items, high-touch surfaces (e.g. counters, menus) and interactive components (e.g. tablets, smart kiosks) are frequently cleaned/disinfected.
  • Communal amenities for self-service (e.g. drink dispensers and condiment stations) must not be used11.
  • Self-service food samples, must not be provided.
  • Hand sanitisers should be made available to employees and customers at common touchpoints (e.g. entry/exit doors, cashiers). Employees handling cash and other payment modes (e.g. credit cards) should clean or sanitise their hands before handling food and food packaging.
11 F&B establishments are allowed to place condiments and cutleries at their stall counters, as long as these are within sight of and managed directly by the employees.


  • F&B establishments should put up clear signages to remind customers to comply with safe management requirements where applicable, and train and deploy service personnel to provide clear communication to customers on safe management measures.
  • F&B establishments should allow customers to use their own clean and reusable containers when ordering takeaways. This will help to reduce the amount of waste generated and ease the demand for disposable food containers.
  • Refer to Annex B for other recommended guidelines.
  • To ensure COVID-safe workplaces, F&B establishments should adhere to measures as outlined in MOM’s Requirements for Safe Management Measures at the workplace, and take care of their workers, workplaces and those who may become unwell at their workplaces.
  • Employers must ensure no cross-deployment across worksites 13 , i.e. no employee should work at more than one worksite.
    • If cross-deployment cannot be avoided (e.g. due to the nature of the job), additional safeguards must be taken to minimise the risk of cross infection 14 .
    • For venues that have been visited by positive COVID-19 cases and asked to close by the Ministry of Health (MOH), employees should not be redeployed to other worksites at all for the period of closure. If instructed to go for swabs, employers must ensure that their employees from these venues visit the designated Regional Screening Centre, “Swab and Send Home” (SASH) Public Health Preparedness Clinics or mobile swab sites for the COVID-19 test offered by MOH. These employees should stay at home and minimise social interactions during the period of closure even if their swab results are negative. They should also monitor their health closely, and visit a doctor immediately if unwell.
12 Refers to the F&B establishments’ back-of-house operations involving employees, including at offices, warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
13 This will not apply to industries /companies that need to do so due to the nature of their work. Such companies will be required to demonstrate that cross-deployment of interaction between employees is critical for business operations, when requested by MOM or their sector agencies.
14 E.g. systems are in place to ensure no direct contact between the cross-deployed personnel.
  • Government agencies will be conducting inspections to check on the proper implementation of the safe management measures. Under the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act passed in Parliament on 7 April 2020, first-time offenders will face a fine of up to S$10,000, imprisonment of up to six months, or both. Subsequent offences may face a fine of up to S$20,000, imprisonment of up to twelve months, or both.
  • Businesses that do not implement or comply with the government’s requirements on safe management measures may be ineligible for government grants, loans, tax rebates and other assistance, and may also be subject to temporary closures.

F&B and Online Retail Delivery

With effect from 16 May through 13 June 2021, all F&B establishments can only operate for takeaway and/or delivery. Dining-in is not permitted. In addition, online retail is encouraged for retail establishments to minimise in-store dwell time. These measures are to reduce physical interactions and risk of transmission within the community.

In line with this, we are providing operational guidance on safe management measures for businesses providing delivery services for F&B and retail establishments. This includes in-house delivery operations, third-party delivery businesses, as well as taxis and private-hire cars (PHCs)32, which can continue to make grocery and food deliveries. All such delivery personnel must comply with these measures.

32 In March 2020, LTA announced a temporary liberalisation of regulations to allow the use of taxis and PHCs for grocery and food deliveries. This arrangement will continue to be in place until end September 2021.

Companies providing food delivery services must comply with the following:

For delivery personnel

  • Wear masks at all times during their work.
  • Minimise contact and interactions with others at all times and not cluster together when waiting to collect food items or during breaks (not more than 2 persons in a group). This includes interactions with employees from F&B establishments, customers and other delivery personnel.
  • Comply with the one-metre distancing measure with other individuals, including other delivery personnel. If an F&B outlet is crowded, they should wait outside the establishment, maintain a safe distance from other delivery personnel or customers, and only enter the outlet when the food is ready for collection.

For F&B establishments

  • Opt for contactless pick-up, where food orders are placed by the F&B establishment at designated locations for pick-up by delivery personnel.

For customers

  • Opt for contactless receiving of food, where food orders are left by delivery personnel at designated locations (e.g. at the doorstep) for pick-up by customers.

Businesses providing online retail delivery services must comply with the following:

For delivery personnel

  • Wear masks at all times during their work.
  • Minimise contact and interactions with others at all times and not cluster together when waiting to collect food items or during breaks (not more than 2 persons in a group). This includes interactions with employees from retail establishments, customers and other delivery personnel.
  • Comply with the one-metre safe distancing measure. They should only enter the retail establishment when the retail item is ready for collection.
  • Leave the premises as soon as bulk items have been put in place.

For retail establishments

  • Opt for contactless pick-up, where items are placed at designated locations for pick-up by delivery personnel.
  • For on-site installation, employees responsible for delivery and installation must comply with stringent hygiene and safe management measures, and leave the premises once installation is completed. The number of employees involved in the installation should be kept to no more than 2 workers.

For consumers

  • Opt for contactless receiving of items, where items are left by deliver personnel at designated locations (e.g. at the doorstep) for pick-up by customers.
  • Delivery personnel are encouraged to download the TraceTogether mobile app or use a TraceTogether Token33 to facilitate contact tracing; this will help protect themselves and the community.
  • When entering establishments for collection of items, they must do their SafeEntry check-in (via TraceTogether-only SafeEntry) and temperature screening where required.

    The following retail establishments are required to deploy SafeEntry:
    • Malls and large standalone stores;
    • Large retail stores > 930 sqm or 10,000 sqft;
    • Supermarkets;
    • Personal care services e.g. hairdressers, barbers, spas, beauty and wellness; and
    • Facilities providing basic pet services (that do not function on a drop-off, pick-up basis).
  • Note that i) large retail stores > 930 sqm (or 10,000 sqft) and ii) supermarkets located within a TraceTogether-only SafeEntry building (e.g. malls) that have the same operating hours as the building are not required to deploy SafeEntry check-in for customers, vendors and visitors (including delivery personnel). However, those located within a TraceTogether-only SafeEntry building but with longer operating hours must implement TraceTogether-only SafeEntry outside the building’s operating hours.
  • As per current practice, it is not necessary for delivery personnel to do SafeEntry check-in at F&B establishments.
33 For those using the TraceTogether Token, they are reminded to check the battery level. A green blinking light indicates that the Token is functioning properly whereas a red blinking light indicates that the battery is low.
  • All delivery businesses must comply with the following:
    • Carry out daily temperature screening and health declaration among staff, including delivery personnel before they start work. Those who are unwell cannot work and must go to the doctor.
    • Ensure adoption of cleanliness and hygiene practices and compliance with MOH health advisories.
    • Delivery personnel who are eating or drinking in the course of their work must wear their masks immediately after doing so. They should dine alone, keep a distance of at least one metre from any other individual and refrain from interacting with other individuals.
    • Equip delivery personnel with hand sanitisers. Personnel must be reminded to wash their hands with soap and water regularly. In the event that they are unable to do so in between deliveries, they must keep their hands clean by using the hand sanitisers.
    • Delivery personnel must frequently clean carriers such as food carriers, food bags and food warmers for food delivery, and other forms of carriers and boxes for retail delivery. The frequency of cleaning should be commensurate with increased usage.
    • Delivery personnel should not place their personal items (e.g. water bottles) in the same box, carrier, or insulated container, which are used to hold food ordered by customers.
    • Businesses can refer to NEA’s guidelines of Interim List of Household Products and Active Ingredients for Disinfection of the COVID-19 Virus for information. Businesses will need to ensure appropriate use of disinfectants and ensure they do not come into contact with food.
  • Employers, employees, and delivery personnel must exercise social responsibility by observing good personal hygiene and monitoring their health conditions. Employees and delivery personnel must reduce physical interactions and not have meals in groups. Those who are unwell, even with mild flu-like symptoms, must see a doctor and stay at home to prevent spreading illness to others.

Communications

  • All companies providing delivery services must provide clear communications and reminders to delivery personnel to ensure compliance with the above safe management and baseline sanitation and hygiene measures to ensure compliance.

Enforcement of measures

  • Government agencies will be stepping up enforcement of these safe management measures. Under the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act passed in Parliament on 7 April 2020, first-time offenders will face a fine of up to S$10,000, imprisonment of up to six months, or both. Subsequent offences may face a fine of up to S$20,000, imprisonment of up to twelve months, or both.
  • Businesses that do not implement or comply with the government’s safe management advisories may also be ineligible for government grants, loans, tax rebates and other assistance.
