You can finally have your BBTs
After two long months of wait, Singapore is currently moving to Phase 2 of reopening this Friday 1 Jun. Under phase 2, retail and food and beverage (F&B) dine-in will be allowed to reopen with safe distancing measures in place.
While it didn’t specifically mentioned about stores that retails predominantly beverages, packaged snacks and desserts, a check on the Go Business site by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) shows the list of permitted services and the corresponding SSIC codes that will be allowed to operate with effect from 19 June 2020.
SSIC codes starting with 56 basically means all restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets, food courts, coffee shops and canteens, food kiosks mainly for takeaway and delivery, food caterers and stalls selling cooked food and prepared drinks will be allowed to open except SSIC code 5613 (Pubs).
Minister for Education, Ong Ye Kung, has confirmed this in his Facebook post yesterday (15 Jun).
We can’t wait to have our bubble teas.
