Reading Time: < 1 minute

Singapore’s health ministry said on Friday it will start easing COVID-19 restrictions, including allowing fully vaccinated people to dine in at restaurants in groups of five, from next Tuesday.

The easing comes as the government expects more than 70% of the population to have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Aug. 9.

The government will also resume entry approvals for vaccinated work pass holders and their dependants with travel history to higher risk countries from Aug. 10.
