Updated COVID-19 Safe Management Measures (SMM)

As Singapore aims to transition to a COVID-19 resilient nation, the Singapore’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) continue to monitor the situation and streamline the safe management measures to allow more activities to resume. As the situation in Singapore has improved considerably, the government ease the community SMMs.

As such, effective from 29 March 2022, Ministry of Health (MOH) implement the following adjustments along these five most important and effective measures:

  1. Group Sizes;

  2. Mask-wearing;

  3. Workplace Requirements;

  4. Safe Distancing; and

  5. Capacity Limits

GROUP SIZES

  • Group sizes of up to 10 people for mask-off activities.

  • Up to 10-person at any one time per household.

  • Unvaccinated should exercise caution, reduce movement, stay at home as much as possible.

MASK-WEARING

  • Mask-wearing will continue to be required for indoor settings when people leave their homes, but will be optional in outdoor settings.

WORKPLACE REQUIREMENTS

  • 75% of workforce who can work from home may return to the workplace.

SAFE DISTANCING

  • Mask-off settings: Required 1-metre distance between groups or individuals.

  • Mask-on settings: Not required, but safe distancing is encouraged.

  • The distance will be streamlined to a single safe distance of 1 meter for all settings.

Capacity Limits

Event sizes will be set based on the capacity of the venue. What this implies is that:

  • No capacity limit - for smaller settings, specific events, mask-on events up to 1,000 people. (such as religious services, business events, media conferences, funerary memorial events, solemnizations, wedding receptions, and mask-on classes) .

  • 75% capacity limit - of the venue for large settings and mask-on events of more than 1,000 people. (such as: Attractions, cruises, MICE and large work-related events, as well as large performing arts venues and sports stadiums. )

  • 1-metre safe distancing is required for mask-off events.



Even as Singapore resume the transition towards living with COVID-19, everyone need to do so in a careful and controlled manner and cooperate to:

  • Exercise social responsibility and cooperate with the SMMs

  • Follow the appropriate health protocols should you test positive for COVID-19, including by resting at home or visiting the primary care physicians if you need any medical attention

  • Refrain from going to the Emergency Departments unless there are any medical emergencies

  • Get vaccinated and boosted when eligible

These will ensure the current situation continues to remain stable, and allow us to progressively resume our social and economic activities. Source: Ministry of Health Singapore
