Meals at National Sport Day (NSD) events should be served in accordance with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH)'s guidance for catering during exhibitions/conferences/cultural events, according to the 'Healthcare Protocol and Public Health Measures' document issued by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).
Only readymade or prepackaged meals are allowed during preparations, training and during the actual event with a minimum of 2m distance between tables in all directions with not more than four people seated at the same table and with 1.5m distance between people if at the same table, the protocol states with regard to catering.
Food outlets and concessions at venues are restricted to providing readymade takeaway meals in disposable packaging. Prepackaged, grab-and-go food meals and drinks are preferred to shorten the waiting time for customers.
Also, dining in outdoor settings is preferred over indoor settings.
Queues for obtaining meals must comply with the minimum of 1.5m physical distancing precautions. Floors need to be marked to ensure compliance with the regulations, while also providing staff or volunteers to ensure that the public is following the stipulated measures.
No buffet food is to be served at any venue.
