Restrictions to be lifted for Covid19


 

Daily  Dose: Restrictions Eased


A slew of measures was announced overnight as the local cases dipped below 10.

While the measures are welcoming, there are still restrictions on social gathering to no more than 5. Unless one intends to get married or going to a wedding ceremony, do not congregate in groups until restrictions are lifted.


1) 12 new Covid 19 cases

  • 7 Dorms
  • 1 Community
  • 4 Imported

2) More People allowed to return to the workplace from Sep 28. 

More employees will be allowed to return to the workplace, although safe management measures must be in place and employers are encouraged to implement measures such as flexible working hours and staggered reporting times.

Employers must ensure that such employees continue to work from home for at least half their working time, and no more than half of such employees are at the workplace at any point in time.

Essential business travel will also be permitted for senior executives with extensive regional or international responsibilities through a new pilot scheme.

Events within the workplace, such as seminars, corporate retreats and annual general meetings will also be allowed to resume, as long as safe distancing measures are in place. However, work-related events at external venues remain prohibited for now.

Wedding bells would be ringing again. The last quarter will be a busy year. On that note, can wedding couple still do tea ceremony at home?

Up to 100 unique attendees, including the wedding couple but excluding vendors and service providers, will be allowed to attend wedding receptions in venues that are permitted to serve food and drinks, Mr Gan said at a virtual press conference. This is up from the current limit of 50. 

Similarly, all religious organisations will be allowed to conduct congregational and other worship services for up to 100 people, though safe distancing and safe management measures have to be in place.

6) More than 10,000 taxies, private hire drivers tested negative for Covid19

Voluntary testing for taxi and private hire drivers were conducted between Sept 8 and 22 at temporary swab sites such as taxi depots and regional screening centres.

Separately, more than 750 stallholders and food delivery personnel in Marine Parade were also tested as part of a pilot run on Sep 19 and 20.

All of them have also tested negative for COVID-19, said MOH

This indicates a low prevalence in the community. Good news for everyone.
