Thirteen eateries were also fined for breaching rules.
Sixteen F&B outlets, including Don Don Donki Food Court at The Central and a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) outlet, were ordered to close temporarily for breaching safe management measures (SMMs).
Other F&B outlets include Komala Vilas on Serangoon Road and Marche at 313@Somerset, authorities said in a press release on Thursday (Jul 1).
The breaches were uncovered during stepped-up enforcement checks over the past week.
While dining-in at F&B outlets has been allowed to resume on Jun 21 in groups of up to two people, F&B establishments will not be allowed to play music and groups of diners will have to be seated at least 1m apart.
One of the outlets, 155 Music Lounge on Joo Chiat Road, was ordered to close for 10 days from Jun 30 by authorities after it was found to have allowed groups larger than two people to sit at the same table on multiple occasions.
The sixteen F&B outlets that have been ordered to shut are:
Additionally, 13 other eateries were fined $1,000 for breaches of SMMs, which involves seating groups of diners less than 1m apart and playing loud music.
They include Ichikokudo Ramen at 313@Somerset, Paul Bakery at Paragon mall and Max’s Restaurant at Far East Plaza.
MSE also added that 14 individuals were each fined $300 for breaching SMMs – such as gathering in groups of more than two in F&B outlets and failing to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
In the past week, more than 1,500 people have also been issued advisories for breaching the COVID-19 measures at parks and beaches managed by the National Parks Board (NParks).
In addition, 11 other individuals were fined $300 each for breaching SMMs after gathering in a group larger than the permitted group size, which was eight at the time.
They were investigated by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) for a birthday gathering in an Orchard Hotel room which took place in February.
Continued enforcement checks will be stepped up and firm action will be taken against hotels and individuals who break the rules, MSE added.
