[COVID-19] SMMs for F&B and Retail & Lifestyle-related Services for P2HA

As a follow-up to yesterday’s announcement, we have updated the Safe Management Measures for F&B and Retail/ Lifestyle-related Services as we return to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).

 

Please note (From 22 July through 18 August 2021):

F&B

  • Dining-in is not allowed. F&B establishments can only open for takeaway and/or delivery
  • All events and promotions that will generate crowds at physical premises should be cancelled
  • F&B establishments (originally providing dine-in services) that choose to remain open for takeaway/delivery must continue to place their employees on the regular 14-day Fast and Easy Testing (FET) regime. Such regular FET will continue to be made free of charge during this period. Details on the requirements can be found here.

 

 

 

Retail and Lifestyle-related Services

  • Retail establishments have to ensure at least 1-metre spacing between groups of customers (of maximum 2 persons)
  • Occupancy limit for malls and large standalone stores will be one person per 16 sqm of Gross Floor Area
  • All events and promotions that will generate crowds at physical premises should be cancelled
  • The operating capacity of Commercial Family Entertainment Centres must be kept to a maximum of one person per 16 sqm of usable space or 25% operating capacity, whichever is lower
  • Indoor “mask-off” services and activities must cease. This includes dine-in F&B establishments, strenuous indoor exercise class or strenuous individual and group indoor sports and exercise activities. Personalised services which require masks to be removed (e.g. facials, saunas, make-up services), singing, and the playing of instruments that require intentional expulsion of air (e.g. wind or brass instruments) will also not be allowed. These do not apply to medical and dental consultations that require patients to have their masks removed.
  • Businesses (originally providing mask-off services such as facials, spas/saunas and make-up services) that continue to remain open for sale of products or other services must continue to place their employees on the regular 14-day FET regime. If they have otherwise ceased operations during this period, employees are not required to conduct FET.  Details on the requirements can be found here.
