CNA – COVID-19 vaccination-differentiated measures will be lifted from October 10, with restrictions no longer in place for dining in, entertainment establishments and events with over 500 participants.
“We have learnt to live with the COVID-19 virus, having weathered several infection waves and progressively lifted safe management measures,” said the Ministry of Health (MOH) in a news release yesterday.
“As we resume normalcy in our daily activities, we will lift the vaccination-differentiated safe management measures fully from October 10, 2022.
“(The measures have) served us well in our journey to a safe re-opening,” said the MOH.
Singapore has significantly eased COVID-19 measures, with mask-wearing not required except on public transport, as well as in healthcare and residential care settings. Group size limits and safe-distancing measures have also been lifted. SafeEntry and TraceTogether requirements were also removed for most settings.
However, even as the measures are lifted, people who are not fully vaccinated continue to face a higher risk of severe disease, said the Health Ministry.
“We urge such persons to come forward to be vaccinated, or continue to take their own precautions and minimise social interactions to protect themselves.”
