SportSG said in a media release on Wednesday (26 August) that registered instructors can book these new spaces to conduct their classes. For the use of venues such as parks and HDB common areas, they will also have to seek approval from the respective venue owners (National Parks Board, Town Councils).

The instructor will be responsible for ensuring that the safe management measures are in place and adhered to. These measures include temperature and symptoms screening, safe distancing, and maintaining a list of participants in venues where SafeEntry is not deployed.
