On 6 August 2021, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced a calibrated easing of safe management measures (SMMs) in two stages from 10 August 2021 and 19 August 2021. Following the announcement, Sport Singapore is providing guidance regarding the SMMs concerning all sport and physical exercises & activities, and public & private sports & recreational facilities in Singapore for the period 10 August 2021 onwards. This guidance has been updated to include measures that will be applicable from 19 August 2021.
