Remember the incident last month when photos of several individuals congregating at Robertson Quay was uploaded online, causing furore among citizens?

Six men and one woman, aged between 30 and 52, will be charged in court on Tuesday (Jun 2) for breaching the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020, according to media reports.

This comes after investigations by the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the police. The incident also led to the ban of takeaway alcohol in the area on May 17.

Photos posted online show several individuals gathering in groups at Robertson Quay. Some were seen without their masks on.

Singapore will exit from the circuit breaker on Jun 2, after 55 days.

The exit will be done in three phases. In Phase 1, dining in at all food and beverage outlets isn’t allowed.

Social visits are limited to just visiting parents and grandparents, with a limit of two members from the same household. Social gatherings are not allowed yet.

If you want to hang out with your friends, you can only do so in Phase 2, which could come earlier than expected if the community cases remain low and stable.

So here’s a reminder that even after circuit breaker ends, safe distancing rules are still in place.

And please abide by them, so we can remove the possibility of a second wave of infections and get to Phase 2 as soon as we can. Or even avoid a fine of $300, or more (if you are a second-time offender!).
