From 24th April, Singapore relaxes some Covid-19 events rules provided pre-event testing is conducted accordingly.
Starting from 24th April, more participants of weddings, live performances, and other event activities are allowed with pre-event Covid-19 test to be conducted.
The number of allowed attendees for marriage solemnisations, wedding receptions, and live performances will be raised starting from next month, 24th April. This is provided that pre-event testing for Covid-19 is conducted beforehand.
The event participants are required to be tested up to 24 hours before the end of the event.
The test might be conducted at the venue itself or at a dedicated testing facility/clinic. Only if they are tested negative, then will they be allowed to join the event.
If the attendees have been vaccinated (at least two weeks after their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccines), they are not required to do the pre-event testing anymore.
Wedding Receptions / Combined Wedding Receptions with Solemnisation
Previously only 100 people (including the bride and groom but excluding vendors and service providers) are allowed to attend wedding receptions and marriage solemnisations.
However, from 24th April, the participant’s capacity limit will be raised to 250 attendees (including the wedding couple but excluding vendors and service providers). They will still have to be split across multiple zones or staggered timings of up to 50 people each.
By involving more than 100 participants, pre-event testing is required for all attendees and the wedding couple. This is due to the higher risk of Covid-19 transmission when people are enjoying their meals without their masks on.
Marriage Solemnisations Only
Similar to the requirements for wedding receptions above, the attendees’ limit for marriage solemnisation will be scaled up from 100 to 250 participants (including the bride and groom but excluding vendors and licensed solemniser) in different zones/time slots of up to 50 people each.
Nonetheless, for solemnisation, pre-event testing is still required but only mandatory for the bride and the groom if the participants are more than 100 people. There is no need for pre-event testing if the attendees are still within 100 people.
Live performances / Pilot business-to-business events / Pilot spectator sports events(seated)
For live performances, pilot business-to-business events, and pilot spectator sports events (seated), a maximum of 250 attendees are allowed to participate in the events without the need for pre-event testing. The capacity limits can be increased up to a maximum of 750 people, provided pre-event testing is conducted for all the attendees.
As for holding pilot business-to-business events including meetings and exhibitions:
For up to 250 people, the event is required to be conducted in zones of up to 50 attendees each.
For up to 750 people, the event is required to be conducted in zones of no more than 50 attendees each.
Wakes & Funerals
Previously only 30 people are allowed to attend the day of burial/cremation. However, from 24th April, up to 50 people are allowed on the day of burial/cremation. As for the other days of the wake, it will remain at 30 attendees. Pre-event testing is not required.
