Social Distancing Violation - Fines

Post by mcquiry » Sun, 08 Aug 2021 7:40 pm

What’s the penalty for violations on social distancing , ie gatherings? Saw yesterday a group of 4 (expats) in a park getting questioned by a group of enforcement officers … Although they were not mingling but kept 2m apart but were chatting …

Law obviously stated extreme cases …. But any idea what they are going to experience. ?

Don’t really know … what you mean. Probably anything between 300-1000 SGD based on research done previously …

There may be a different punishment for intentionally coughing on someone that pissed you off… I believe there have been actual deaths in the US from people doing that. It’s snot right!

Under the circumstances, I'd be willing to bet that it could well be considered as an a"ssault with intent....."

Guess the law did not change … just a question what they will impose now for first time offenders … And whether it is still 300
