SINGAPORE - The Anytime Fitness gym in Bukit Timah recently linked to the suspected Omicron cluster has been ordered to close for 10 days after it did not ensure that patrons adhered to safe management measures (SMMs).
Sport Singapore (SportSG) said in a statement on Thursday (Dec 23) that the gym in Bukit Timah Shopping Centre had been issued with a notice of composition and ordered to close for 10 days from Wednesday.
It said: "SportSG urges all sport and fitness operators and patrons to remain vigilant and adhere strictly to the SMMs which are put in place to keep the community safe. Enforcement action will be taken against businesses or individuals who fail to comply with the SMMs."
