As more than 70 per cent of the population has received both vaccine doses, Singapore has eased Covid-19 rules for business events, in a step towards its endemic Covid-19 plan.
Previously, up to 500 people may attend MICE events if they have all been vaccinated. As of August 19, up to 1,000 attendees are now allowed if all have been vaccinated. If unvaccinated, this limit is reduced to 50. The unmasking for speakers may also resume.
Live performances have also been upped from 500 to 1,000 attendees if all are vaccinated. If unvaccinated, this limit remains at 50. The unmasking and singing/ playing of instruments that require expulsion of air for live performances may also resume.
Similarly for spectator and participatory sports events, limits have been upped from 500 to 1,000 if all are vaccinated. If unvaccinated, this limit remains at 50.
Regardless, all events are subject to updated safe management measures.
In addition, 50 per cent of employees who can work from home may return to the workplace. Workplace social gatherings will also be allowed, but is capped at five people.
