Advisory on gradual resumption of business activities in phases starting from 2 June 2020

As announced by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce, Circuit Breaker measures will be gradually eased from 2 June 2020, and businesses will be allowed to resume activities in the phased banner. View MTI’s press release (attached) for more details.

The list of businesses (accurate as of 19 May 2020) that may operate from 2 June 2020 can be found in the attached infographic.  Refer to for the latest updates.

Businesses in the permitted list should note that:

  • They do not need to apply for an exemption before resuming operations. A class exemption will be granted for them to resume operations.
  • They must submit their manpower details via the GoBusiness portal ( within two weeks of resuming operations.
  • They must also comply with the requirements for Safe Management Measures as per (“Safe Management Requirements”) and any sector-specific requirements which apply to them. Strict checks will be conducted, and businesses that do not provide a safe workplace for our workers will have their operations suspended until they are able to do.
  • They should continue to act in a responsible manner, and not plan or organise events that could draw large numbers of employees or customers, such as “welcome back” sales and parties.
  • Telecommuting should be adopted to the maximum extent. Those who have been working from home so far should continue to do so.

Those who wish to report breaches or poor workplace practices can do so via SnapSAFE ( – an app that allows the reporting of workplace safety and health issues to MOM. Should community transmission rise, MTI will re-evaluate the timeline and the businesses that can resume operations from 2 June 2020.

The business advisory ( will be updated shortly.
