LUCKY PLAZA, PENINSULA PLAZA WEEKEND RESTRICTIONS TO BE LIFTED
Weekend entry restrictions at Lucky Plaza and Peninsula Plaza will be lifted from Saturday, more than seven months after they were put in place as part of COVID-19 measures.

“While entry restrictions have been lifted, visitors are strongly advised not to rush to these malls immediately, or to visit during peak hours,” STB and ESG said in a joint release. “To avoid a longer waiting time to enter the malls, patrons should plan their visits during weekdays or non-peak periods on weekends.”
Odd-even entry restrictions based on the last digit of the identification number for each visitor have been in place at the malls since Aug 29 last year.
As of Saturday, Singapore reported 60,633 COVID-19 cases in total.
