Safe Management Measures at the Attractions
The attractions which are reopening are required to adhere to the safe management measures and demonstrate the ability to meet density requirements and separation requirements within the attraction.
Notably, when the attractions reopen, they will operate at no more than 25% of their normal capacity. If they are able to successful implement their safe management measures and show additional plans to handle an increased capacity, they may be allowed to increase capacity gradually.
Mr Keith Tan, Chief Executive, Singapore Tourism Board, said: “The tourism sector has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, but our industry partners have responded with professionalism and resilience. With tourism reopening in a safe and gradual manner, STB’s key priority will be to ensure that tourism businesses can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for their guests and visitors. While it will be some time before Singapore can fully welcome international visitors, we hope Singaporeans and residents of Singapore will enjoy what our tourism businesses have to offer, in a socially responsible way.”
