Places where SafeEntry must be deployed
28 May 2020

All businesses and services that are in operation must institute SafeEntry for their employees, associates and vendors.

Of the businesses/services that are allowed to be in operation, the following list of facilities/places must also deploy the SafeEntry system to log the check-in of customers, clients, students, visitors entering their premises.

  • Workplaces e.g. offices, factories
  • Schools and educational institutes
  • Preschools and student care centres
  • Healthcare facilities e.g. hospitals, clinics, TCM clinics, complementary healthcare facilities
  • Residential and community-based care facilities e.g. nursing homes, Senior Activity Centres, Senior Care Centres, Day Activity Centres for Persons with Disabilities
  • Hairdressers / barbers
  • Supermarkets
  • Selected popular wet markets (Geylang Serai Market, Block 104/105 Yishun Ring Road (Chong Pang Market), Block 20/21 Marsiling Lane, and Block 505 Jurong West Street 52)
  • Malls
  • Hotels
  • Places of worship
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Funeral parlours
  • Facilities providing basic pet services (that do not function on a drop-off, pick-up basis)

SafeEntry has been progressively rolled out to taxis since 12 May 2020 to better support contact tracing efforts for street-hail trips. All commuters who get onto the taxi should scan the SafeEntry QR codes deployed in taxis when taking street-hail trips.

Retail outlets where customers are unlikely to be in close proximity for a prolonged period of time, such as pharmacies, convenience stores and heartland provision shops, are encouraged, but not required, to implement SafeEntry for customers.

F&B outlets are not required to deploy SafeEntry for customers for now, as they are only open for delivery and/or takeaway.

For avoidance of doubt, all premises, including retail and F&B outlets, must still implement SafeEntry for employees, associates and vendors as per all workplaces, and adhere strictly to the other safe management measures, e.g. safe distancing.

This list will be updated as more activities and services are resumed. Please visit https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg for the list of services permitted to operate at this point in time.


Help us Shape The Future of SafeEntry
27 May 2020

We’d like your help shaping the future of SafeEntry. We’re always working to make improvements and add new capabilities, and your input helps us get it right.

As a business participating in our beta program, you will test and provide feedback on new versions of SafeEntry before we release them to the public.

With a BETA testing account, you will be able to access a test environment where you can try out your SafeEntry set up before it becomes live to the public.

As you try out the beta features, please understand that real-world testing will be happening concurrently; there might be the occasional bug or two, but your feedback is a huge part of helping us build a better SafeEntry.
