SINGAPORE: Self-service buffets are allowed to resume from April 30 in line with Singapore’s easing of COVID-19 measures.
F&B establishments that offer self-service buffets must provide their guests with hand sanitizer or disposable gloves, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said on Friday (April 29).
“Licensed food establishments with self-service buffets are required to place at least two bottles of hand sanitizer or two packages of disposable gloves near a self-service buffet, with all exit points covered,” the SFA said, adding that the hand sanitizers must contain at least 60 percent alcohol.
F&B establishments are “strongly encouraged” to remind guests to use the hand sanitizer or disposable gloves before collecting the serving silverware from the self-service buffet counters, the agency said.
This is also necessary if the self-service buffet takes place outside the licensed catering establishment.
When employees serve food to customers, there is no need to provide hand sanitizer or disposable gloves. “However, service personnel should handle ready-to-eat food with clean serving utensils or gloves,” SFA said.
