This is part of the move to only allow the most essential services to continue operating.
As part of the tightened measures for circuit breaker announced on Tuesday (Apr 21), standalone outlets selling only beverages, packaged snacks, confectioneries or desserts will not be allowed to operate.
This means that popular bubble tea brands such as Koi cannot operate until the circuit breaker ends on Jun 1.
Fruit juice, smoothies, as well as coffee joints are included in the list too.
However, if the stores operate out of hawker centres, food courts and coffeeshops, they can continue to do so, the Ministry for Trade and Industry (MTI) said in a news release.
Only F&B outlets that sell meals can continue to remain open for takeaway and delivery services, MTI said.
Hairdressing and barber services will be closed too until the end of the circuit breaker period.
Additional restrictions will be placed on consumer-facing businesses such as optician shops.
These businesses will no longer be able to accept walk-in customers and operate by appointment only. Pet supplies stores and retail laundry services will need to close their physical stores. However, they can still provide online sales and delivery.
