Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Mr Christopher de Souza
MP for Holland-Bukit Timah GRC
Question No. 1239
To ask the Minister for Health what is the likelihood of resumption of dining out in groups of more than five persons.
The current stabilisation measures will not remain static throughout this coming month. We will monitor the situation and relax restrictions wherever we can, as we transit to living with COVID-19. A key indicator which we are monitoring closely is the weekly infection growth rate (i.e. the ratio of community cases in the past week over the week before). If the ratio goes below 1.0, and hospital/ICU situation remains stable, it will give us scope to relax restrictions. This will include resuming sports, school activities, and allowing members from the same households to dine together at Food and Beverage (F&B) establishments without having to spread across multiple tables.
