A woman observed not wearing her mask in public in two separate incidents is being investigated by authorities, said Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB) on Friday (March 18).
On March 6, local blogger Wendy Cheng posted a video on Instagram of a woman in sunglasses not wearing a mask walking into a video she was recording. She was also caught on video on March 12 at Jewel Changi Airport without a mask on.
An ESG spokesperson said the woman in both instances has been identified to be the same person. ESG and STB are investigating the case.
“Members of the public are advised to exercise social responsibility by wearing a mask when not consuming any food or drink,” said the spokesperson.
Serene Tan, director of STB’s Safe Management Measures Operations, said that the authorities would not hesitate to take enforcement action for non-compliance.
