Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) have imposed five fines for violating safe distance measures after long weekend enforcement controls.
Two F&B businesses and a grocery store were fined for failing to implement crowd management and allowing customers and delivery staff to band together without a meter.
A Putien store at 127 Kitchener Road, Komalas Vege Mart at 125 Dunlop Street and a Jollibee outlet next to Causeway Point each was fined $ 1,000. You had been warned beforehand.
Another two US $ 300 fines were imposed on two individual grocery delivery employees.
ESG and STB also instructed 30 companies to shut down because they remained open during the circuit breaker period, although they are not included in the essential services.
In a press release released on Sunday (April 12), the two agencies said they would no longer issue warnings.
Companies that from now on violate safe distance measures are immediately punished with fines such as fines for the composition.
Delivery companies must also take concrete steps to ensure that their delivery staff work together and adhere to the measures.
If no safe distancing is practiced during the collection and delivery of food, measures can be taken against the delivery staff, the delivery platforms and the F&B facilities.
Under the COVID 19 Act (Temporary Measures), first-time offenders are fined up to $ 10,000, up to six months in prison, or both.
Subsequent violations can result in a fine of up to $ 20,000, a prison sentence of up to twelve months, or both.
To further protect public health, customers must now wear a mask when visiting supermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacies and shopping centers.
