3. Two-person limit on dining in for unvaccinated people from July 19 to Aug 8
From next Monday (July 19), the cap for dining in at F&B outlets will be reduced to two, down from five, for anyone who has not been fully vaccinated.
Those who are fully vaccinated – meaning it has been at least two weeks since they received the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines – will be allowed to continue dining together in groups of five at certain F&B establishments.
These eateries must have systems to check the vaccination status of patrons.
Unvaccinated people with a valid negative pre-event test result, or those who have recovered from Covid-19 in the past 270 days, may also join such groups of up to five.
Children below the age of 12, who are not eligible for vaccination, can also join groups of five without the need for pre-event testing if they are from the same household as the other diners.
If the children are not from the same household, they should not constitute more than half the group, the MOH said.
For eateries that do not enforce SafeEntry check-ins such as hawker centres and food courts, group sizes will be capped at two, as it is difficult to check the vaccination status of all diners.
Cinemas can allow groups of five if no food and drinks are served.
