After two days in a row of 11 community cases, we finally earned a (slight) respite from the numbers today.
On 29 Jun, as of 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) reports 202 new Covid-19 cases, out of which, 6 are in the community.
Four of the community cases are Singaporeans/PRs while two are work pass holders.
Foreign workers residing in dormitories make up a vast majority of the cases.
With this, the total number of Covid-19 cases in Singapore has risen to 43,661.
Two Eateries Closed For Breaching Covid-19 Regulations
In case you’re confused, Phase Two doesn’t mean the disappearance of Covid-19 rules.
In fact, they’re very much around and the authorities are very much happy to make sure you don’t breach them again (if you’re caught breaching them lah).
According to the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), since Phase Two kicked in, they have issued 19 composition fines of $300 each to individuals, and 4 composition fines between $1,000 to $2,000 to businesses that didn’t comply with COVID-19 safe-distancing measures.
For example, Furama Riverfront Hotel was fined $1,000 for failing to record visitors’ contact details upon entry, and Chennai Trading, a mini-mart, was fined $2,000 for lack of crowd management.
It’s reported that two eateries have been ordered to cease operations immediately.
The reason? Customers were allowed to consume alcohol on the premises after 10.30pm.
Lest you’re now aware, one of the new rules in Phase Two is that F&B outlets must cease alcohol sales and consumption by 10:30pm.
Of course, you’re wondering: I thought that rule was put in place since many years back after the 2013 Little India riot? That’s why you can’t even buy a can of Tiger beer from NTUC FairPrice at 10:31pm, right?
Well, you’re right. But there are places with licences to sell alcoholic drinks after 10:30pm, so this new rule applies primarily to them.
The two eateries are Chico Loco and Moonstone, both of which along Amoy Street.
Other than being told to suspend operations, they’re fined $1,000 each as well.
It’s not all bad news, however, as more places in Singapore are gearing up to open their doors again.
