With almost everyone being ordered to stay at home, many people aren’t able to meet their significant others. But that’s what video calls are for, right? Well, not for this couple who doesn’t seem to have any intentions of taking social distancing seriously.
A Singaporean couple were caught kissing and having drinks at a public bench that had been cordoned off with red and white tape. A video was captured by a witness of the incident that took place on 14 April.
They were fined SGD300 (RM918) each for breaching safe distancing measures at Upper Boon Keng Road.
According to Stomp, the police had received multiple calls at about 8.30am from a member of the public who informed of the two people violating social distancing measures. The police then arrived at about 9.10am.
“When the police officers arrived, they found a 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman sitting on the bench within the cordoned area,” the police said.
“They were each issued a composition fine of $300 for breaching safe distancing measures under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020.”
“They were advised to adhere to the measures, and left the area thereafter.”
After this came out, of course some joked how the location was definitely not worth the fine. Here’s our favourite response.
OMG, go home and get your own room, guys!
