A Safe Distancing Ambassador (SDA) was seen taking his job seriously at Burgs in VivoCity using a tape measure to ensure diners were spaced out enough in the restaurant.
The SDA, seen in a TikTok video on March 19, first had to lay out the tape measure, before taking a photo of its length as proof that the rules were followed or broken.
Sincere question: I thought the safety distance had been relaxed a little?

The caption overlaid on the video read, “Is this really necessary?”
Caught the attention of diners
Measuring distance and taking photos, the actions of the SDA caused at least two of the diners to turn their heads to see what was happening.
However, they seemed nonchalant when they realized it was probably a routine inspection.
In-person dining is still subject to safe management measures.
Taking action is not new
The efforts that SDAs must make to ensure the implementation of safe management measures have been previously highlighted.
An SDA was seen actively using a tape measure to ensure people were spaced out in an outdoor public place.
A rationalization of safe management measures and not a relaxation of the rules
Safe management measures in Singapore have been streamlined from March 15 as the Omicron wave has likely peaked and Covid-19 cases are declining.
The streamlining covers five areas: group sizes, mask-wearing, workplace rules, safe distancing and capacity limits.
Security barriers have come down and markings have been removed, as public spaces and shelters have reopened.
Restrictions, such as blocking public seating, have been lifted, as they don’t have a big impact on the spread of the virus.
Safe distance is no longer required in mask settings.
However, simplifying, streamlining and removing inconsistencies in the rules does not constitute a relaxation of the rules, the multi-departmental task force said when it announced the relaxation of the rules on March 11.
