Indoor and outdoor facilities are closed to reduce COVID-19 spread (The Straits Times Forum)

Friday, 17 April 2020

We refer to Mr Ong Beng Chye’s letter, “Review Closure of Condo Pools”, dated 14 Apr 2020.

In accordance with MOH’s 3 Apr 2020 advisory “Circuit Breaker To Minimise Further Spread Of COVID-19”, BCA’s 4 Apr 2020 advisory “Closure of all Common Facilities in Management Corporation” and SportSG’s 5 Apr 2020 “Advisory on Sport and Physical Exercise & Activities for the Control Period of 7 April 2020 to 4 May 2020”, all sports, fitness and recreation facilities and spaces should be closed during this circuit breaker period. This includes all indoor and outdoor common sports and recreational facilities within private apartments and condominiums.

The closure of these facilities is to reduce movement and interactions in public spaces and minimise contact between individuals from different households, which is critical in controlling the spread of COVID-19.

We seek everyone’s understanding on the need to close common facilities during this circuit breaker period. Everyone needs to play a part and stay home. For those who want to remain active and fit, they can consider doing functional exercises at home. They can also refer to https://circle.myactivesg.com/circuit-breaker for online resources to stay active.
