Safe management measures will be enforced strictly to allow for a pleasant experience for all visitors.
The National Day Istana Open House (IOH) will be held on Aug 28 after being postponed from Aug 1 when Singapore returned to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
In a media release by the President’s Office on Aug 19, it is announced that only those who had been issued tickets will be admitted.
During this IOH, only the open-air outdoor gardens will be accessible to visitors. No access will be allowed to buildings and other indoor spaces to ensure safety of visitors.
The Istana will also be implementing safe management measures that stretch beyond those of public parks. There will be no mask-off activities, such as eating or drinking, and visitors are expected to keep their masks on at all times.
There will also be no performances, tours, booths or food trucks this year to prevent gathering of crowds.
Ticket holders are also reminded to keep to the timeslot they hold.
Safe distancing ambassadors, Istana staff and volunteers will be deployed to ensure visitors observe all safe management measures.
The President’s Office said: “The Istana seeks the cooperation and understanding of visitors so that the upcoming Istana Open House will be a pleasant experience for all.”
