Unvaccinated Individuals Not Allowed To Dine-In At Kopitiams And Hawker Centres From 13 Oct
Earlier this year, the authorities introduced differentiated measures based on individuals’ vaccination status. However, unvaccinated individuals are still allowed to dine in at hawker centres and coffee shops.
This will no longer be the case from next Wednesday (13 Oct) as the authorities seek to protect unvaccinated individuals as well as to ease the stress on our healthcare system.
Additionally, unvaccinated folks will no longer be able to visit shopping malls and attractions.
