11 F&B outlets, 72 individuals penalised for breaching COVID-19 SMMs
10 of the outlets were ordered to close while one was fined.
Eleven F&B outlets have been penalised in the last week for breaching the COVID-19 Safe Management Measures (SMMs), said the Ministry of Sustainability and Environment (MSE) on Thursday (Dec 30).
Ten outlets were ordered to close for breaches such as failing to ensure diners do not exceed the maximum group size allowed and allowing alcohol to be consumed after 10.30pm .
The 10 F&B outlets are: 2nd Generation Music Lounge (225 Geylang Road), Channel Sam (11 Northshore Drive), D’Rubinah @Punggol (10 Tebing Lane), Genki Sushi at City Square Mall, KNS Restaurant (1110 East Coast Parkway, #01-03/04, Cyclist Park), Level Up (3A River Valley Road, #02-04, Myanmar Culture Society Members Clubhouse (291 New Bridge Road, #02-14/15, Oriental Plaza), Pub Cang Lang Ting (25 Lorong 13 Geylang), Smoo Bar (44A Prinsep Street) and Win Café (470 North Bridge Road, #05-07/08, Bugis Cube).
Oriental Delights at 59 Temple Street received a $1,00 fine for failing to maintain a distance of at least 1m between seats.
Additionally, 72 individuals received fines for failing to comply with the SMMs, including gathering in groups larger than the permitted size and mask-related offences.
The breaches were found when Government agencies stepped up their enforcement routines. Agencies will continue their stepped up efforts in the year-end period to ensure a safe celebration of the new year, said MSE in its press release.
Members of the public are encouraged to avoid crowded places and to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home.
