Keeping our Clubhouse Safe - A Joint Responsibility

Government agencies have been stepping up enforcement on Safe Management Measures. Under the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act passed in Parliament on April 7, 2020, first-time offenders will face a fine of up to S$10,000, imprisonment of up to six months, or both. Subsequent offences may face a fine of up to S$20,000, imprisonment of up to 12 months, or both.

 

Businesses that do not implement or comply with the government’s safe management advisories may also be ineligible for government grants, loans, tax rebates and other assistance. More info here.

 

Additionally, Members who do not behave in a socially responsible way or do not cooperate with staff enforcing safe management measures, could potentially face disciplinary action in accordance with the framework approved by the General Committee.

 

The Club will also face the potential risk of Clubhouse closure, if Members are found to be non-compliant with the Safe Management Measures.
