However, do take note that weddings, funeral services, and social activities are yet to be allowed. Although buffets are now allowed, there are some rules and regulations imposed. First and foremost, diners cannot have direct contact with food.

That simply means that servers will be serving the food to you. Servers must ensure plates are not reused. In addition to this, plastic shields will be placed on the dishes served, and servers are required to wear masks and gloves at all times. Desserts will be served via a trolley, and beverages must be ordered via a digital menu.

Diners queueing for food must wear masks, and required one meter away from other people queueing. For MICE industries, food lines can accommodate up to 50 people only. Some other rules include a safe management representative must be present, different zones are required and these zones must not be served at the same time.
