Organised outdoor exercise classes can be conducted in groups of 2, up to a maximum of 30 persons (including participants and the instructor/assistant) or the approved venue capacity, whichever is lower, with no inter-mingling between groups.
Instructors/trainers of all organised outdoor exercise classes (with more than 2 persons including participants and instructor/trainer) will need to register the class with SportSG and submit an application to NParks at least 1 week in advance, so as to ensure there is ample space in our parks and gardens for safe distancing. Instructors/trainers must ensure that the necessary safe management measures are put in place. Masks must be worn at all times for all group classes of more than 2 persons.
Marriage solemnisations and receptions
Marriage solemnisations may continue in selected function spaces in our parks/garden for up to 50 persons, or up to 100 persons if there is pre-event testing (PET), and with a group size of maximum 2 persons. Wedding receptions may continue with up to 100 persons with PET for all persons, and with a group size of up to 5 persons per table. This includes the couple, but excludes the solemniser and vendors, subject to safe management measures and the venue’s capacity. More info here.
