It is time to start planning for those overdue family meals. Starting this Wednesday, November 10, fully vaccinated family members living in the same household can dine out in groups of up to five people, said the multi-ministry Covid-19 task force in a press conference.

But before you round up everyone at home, do note that the easing of restrictions will only apply to food and beverage (F&B) outlets, but not hawker centres and coffee shops. This is due to the fact that comprehensive checks remain difficult at these places, shares the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Soft music will also be allowed to play at F&B outlets from Wednesday.

The cap on social gatherings remains at two, and each household can still only receive two unique visitors a day.

And as the week-on-week infection ratio continues to fall, the MOH also shared that further relaxing of measures are currently being explored.
