Instructors/trainers of all organised outdoor exercise classes (with more than 5 persons including participants and instructor/trainer) will need to register the class with SportSG and submit an application at least 14 days in advance, so as to ensure there is ample space in our parks and gardens for safe distancing.

Masks must be worn at all times for all group classes of more than 2 persons.

Marriage solemnisations may continue in selected function spaces in our parks/gardens for up to 1,000 persons and 250 persons respectively, if all attendees are fully vaccinated or possess a valid Pre-Event Test (PET), and with a group size of up to 5 persons. Marriage solemnisations may continue up to 50 persons without PET. This includes the couple, but excludes the solemniser and vendors, subject to safe management measures and the venue's capacity.
