Ever since the images of people gathering openly in Robertson Quay went viral, almost all comments on any article about other people breaking circuit breaker rules will comprise at least one person asking about the Robertson Quay “cluster”.
Heck, I heard even some cats were asking about it, too:
About 13 days later, there’s finally an update, and the comment sections will final revert to what it used to be.
Reader Bao: Like what? The 70% deserve it?
Well, that sounds much better than Robertson Quay.
7 People Who Had Flouted Circuit Breaker Rules in Robertson Quay to be Charged
Today, it’s reported that six men and one woman, aged between 30 to 52, will be charged in court on the first day of Phase One: 2 June 2020.
There’s no indication about their nationality. Or their species lest you’re wondering.
These people are linked to the incident whereby groups of people were photographed hanging out at the area which happened very regularly:
They will be charged under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020.
They were allegedly waiting for their takeout, and for some reason, they were dabao-ing alcohol.
Many of the images showed them not wearing masks, with some having their masks on their chins while chit-chatting. There was also no one-metre distance between people, too.
In other words, a blatant disregard for the rules lah.
A day after the images were viral, URA barred the dabao of alcohol in the area as it purportedly contributed to the gatherings, and since then, both URA and the police had said that they are investigating the incident.
On 19 May, the police then updated us, saying that they had identified those offenders.
The Discipline Master of Singapore, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli, said in a Facebook post that they “take such breaches very seriously and will not hesitate to take action.”
Here’s what he’s written:
Six men and one woman will be charged in court on 2 June for breaching safe distancing measures at Robertson Quay on 16 May. We take such breaches very seriously and will not hesitate to take action. My thanks to Urban Redevelopment Authority and the Singapore Police Force for pursuing the violations.
While there has been a decreasing trend in the number of community transmissions, we must remain vigilant to curb the spread of COVID-19. When we exit the Circuit Breaker on 2 June, some restrictions will be lifted, and more of us will come into contact with one another. It will be more critical than ever to practise safe distancing. Remember, these measures are in place to protect us and our loved ones.
Stay home as far as possible. Wear a mask and keep a distance of at least 1 metre from the next person when you go out. Stay safe everyone.
Happy ending to the end of Circuit Breaker?
