Eight establishments have been given warnings by Enterprise Singapore for not complying with COVID-19 safe distancing measures. Advisory letters were sent to seven Food & Beverage (F&B) establishments and one retail establishment on 6 April 2020 as “these establishments did not observe the safe distancing measures adequately, despite repeated reminders to rectify and adhere to the measures”, said an Enterprise Singapore press release. 

The statement went on to say that errant business operators that do not comply with the safe distancing measures in the next follow-up check will be prosecuted under the Infectious Diseases Act (IDA).

Establishments that were issued warning include:

  • ChiCha San Chen outlets at Jem and Tampines 1;
  • Kaffe and Toast at Clementi Mall;
  • Koi outlets at VivoCity and Jurong Point;
  • Nakhon Kitchen at VivoCity;
  • Ya Kun at Jem; and
  • Courts at Tampines Mall

Singapore has imposed new safe distancing measures for all food and beverage establishments as part of its “circuit breaker” measures to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. These measures have currently been imposed till 4 May 2020. 

Enterprise Singapore said that close to 10,000 F&B and retail establishments in shopping malls have been checked till 7 April and that majority have implemented safe distancing measures while some are in the process of rectifying their measures.
