Singapore’s restaurants back to delivery, takeaway only following return to “Phase 2” restrictions

The country’s health ministry said the government will review the measures in two weeks.

Restaurants in Singapore are limited to delivery and takeaway orders once again after the government reinstated its Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) restrictions, starting Thursday, 22 July until 18 August.

The country’s health ministry said the government will review the measures in two weeks and adjust them based on the situation at that time.

Group sizes for social gatherings will also be reduced from five to two people.

The new announcement supersedes the government’s earlier Phase 3 (Heightened Alert) restrictions that started in 19 July where dine-in was restricted to two people per group.

Persons working in settings with unmasked customers such as restaurant staff have been on the mandatory Fast and Easy Test regime since mid-July and do not need to take the COVID-19 tests during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) if their business operations are suspended. 

Staff are also required to continue with the 14-day testing requirements for businesses that remain open, including F&B outlets. Tests will continue to be free during this period.
