Kopitiam, Food Junction food courts to test table-top separators

The pilot is done in a bid to create a safe dining environment.

More than 500 tables at selected Kopitiam and Food Junction outlets as well as canteens for transport workers will have table-top separators installed as part of a trial to create a safe dining solution during the second phase of Singapore's post-circuit breaker period.

The food courts participating are located at IMM, Junction 8, Lot One Shoppers’ Mall, Plaza Singapura, and Tampines Mall whilst the canteens are at public transport operators’ depots in Bulim, Loyang, Seletar and Woodlands.

Funded by Temasek Foundation in partnership with CapitaLand and the National Transport Workers Union, the pilot project features separators that have been treated with a self-disinfecting antimicrobial coating that can last for three months.

Different designs will be implemented for the food and beverage operators in order for them to assess which configurations work best for their respective settings, and for diners to provide their feedback.

Temasek Foundation said it will also be working with coffee chain Ya Kun to explore how these separators can work in small cafe formats.

Groups of up to five will be allowed to dine in at eateries during Phase 2 of the Lion City’s post-circuit breaker reopening.

“Everyone enjoys eating out with friends and families. Our hawker, coffee shop and F&B outlets are very much part of our food culture. They are very much part of our retail economy," Temasek Foundation CEO Ng Boon Heong said in a press release.

"These safety measures would provide more assurance for everybody as we resume dine-in and other operations across the economy,” he added.
