From Tuesday (10 Aug), fully vaccinated individuals are now allowed to dine in at F&B establishments in groups of five following the ease of COVID-19 restrictions.

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated only when they have waited at least 14 days after receiving two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty vaccine, Moderna vaccine, or any vaccines on the WHO EUL listing.

Those who have already received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine but have not waited for 14 days after their second dose are thus not considered fully vaccinated.

Tracking your vaccination status on the TraceTogether app

Your vaccination status can be checked on the TraceTogether app, where you can learn more about your COVID-19 health status on the homepage.

However, individuals can also dine in at F&B establishments if they meet one of the following criteria.

Firstly, they must be recovered from COVID-19 and have a valid Pre-Event Test (PET) exemption notice. Otherwise, they must present a negative PET result for the duration of their dine-in from a COVID-19 test provider approved by the MOH within the last 24 hours.

Children aged 12 years and under will also be permitted to dine in, provided that all children at a table belong to the same household.

Those who have yet to complete their vaccination regimen are only allowed to dine in groups of two at coffee shops and hawker centres.

Authorities stated that F&B establishments are not allowed to accept dine-in customers who are not fully vaccinated or do not meet any of the above requirements.
