QSRs amongst 60 F&B outlets penalised for breaching safe management measures in Singapore

36 were ordered to close temporarily.

Sixty food and beverage (F&B) outlets in Singapore, including some QSRs, have been penalised for breaching “safe management measures” since mid-September, according to the country’s sustainability and environment ministry (MSE).

Of these, 36 were ordered to close temporarily, 21 were fined whilst three pivoted nightlife establishments had their food licenses permanently revoked.

Over 600 premises and more than 900 people were checked for their adherence to vaccinated-differentiated measures during this period, MSE said.

The ministry added that 34 F&B outlets were ordered to close for breaching safe management measures, which included allowing customers to play card games in the premises, failing to ensure customers adhered to the permitted group size and failing to ensure a safe distance of at least a metre between groups of customers.

Another 19 outlets were issued composition fines for breaching measures on their premises, that included gathering in groups larger than the permitted group size, playing music or video recordings, allowing singing and failing to ensure workers wore masks.
