The authorities have decided to implement new measures to improve hygiene and cleanliness standards at hawker centres, coffee shops, and public toilets.

There will be safe distancing ambassadors stationed to remind diners.

Secondly, public toilet owners and operators will also have to ensure the facilities have basic amenities such as liquid hand soap, toilet paper, and litter bins.

 

Furthermore, the NEA is implementing a toilet improvement program for older coffee shops and hawker centers, which will adopt new designs and include new technologies that would make it easier to maintain its cleanliness.
