    Social Distancing Tightened.. More RATs

    Spotted in a newsletter.. Groups of 8 or more will have to present RAT tests. Wonder if this will be done on tables where there are partitions that split groups of 8.

    In plastic partitions we trust!


    With effective from 28th August, any group of more than 8 people in any dining environment including F&B outlets, Function Suites, and all type of events regardless of whether they are seating on the same table, must present a photo showing a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) with a negative result of a test conducted within the preceding 24 hours or a PCR negative result within the preceding 48 hours. The customer's name, date and time of taking the RAT must be marked on the RAT.

    The test is "whether they have a shared goal" or something along those lines

    Our neighbor's kid is in a local P1 and his lunch period was shortened from 30 minutes to 20 minutes because apparently the 10 minutes of mask wearing will save everyone from COVID. And yes the canteens are still closed

    Because COVID only spreads when people know each other and sit in groups of more than 7.
