Unless you’re living in a cave, you should know that the Multi-Ministry Taskforce will allow the gradual resumption of selected activities and services in the coming weeks.
Now you must be wondering, so what are the selected activities and services?
Well here are the answers to some questions you might have!
‘Can cut hair now?’
Yes! Basic haircut services at hairdressers and barbers can resume from May 12. So to those that are in need of a haircut (and those that need to salvage their ruined self-cut hair), its time to rejoice!
But do note that all haircut services must be done within an hour.
‘Does easing of Circuit Breaker Measures mean I can eat out now?’
Nope! F&B outlets that resumed operation can only continue to operate for delivery and takeaway only.
However, here’s some good news! Some businesses such as those selling sweet treats, cakes, ice cream, chocolate, and packaged snacks may open from May 12.
‘So will Bubble Tea shops be back?’
Standalone food and beverage outlets that sell mainly drinks like bubble tea, fruit juice, alcoholic drinks, and coffee must remain closed.
‘What about Home-Based food businesses? Can they continue operation?’
Yes! Home-based food businesses can also resume operations from May 12.
However, they have to adhere to stringent guidelines such as ensuring contactless delivery and collection of orders.
Additionally, only members of the same household can work in the home-based food business.
‘Can I visit my elderly parents then?’
Yes, you may if you have to help them with their daily needs.
However, you are advised to reduce interaction and observe strict personal hygiene.
‘I live in a Condominium, can I exercise in the common area?’
Yes, from May 5, residents living in strata-titled residential buildings such as condominiums may exercise within the common areas of these private residential developments.
However, they must continue to follow safe distancing measures, the same rules that apply in public areas will also apply within the common areas of these developments, according to the task force.
However, do take note that all sports and recreational facilities within these private residential developments such as playgrounds, pools, gyms, barbecue pits and clubhouses will still remain closed.
So if you would like to swim, perhaps its best to spend $10,000 to rent a pool?
While some Circuit Breaker measures may have been eased, we must not let our guards down.
Let us continue to practice social distancing and wear a mask if we are out!
