Singapore — A woman who allegedly pulled down the face mask of a Safe Distancing Ambassador on Saturday night (Sept 11) at Marina Bay Sands is now under investigation.

The incident was caught on video, which was then published by mothership.sg on Sunday.

In it, an irate-looking woman in white, who has her own mask around her neck, reaches out and pulls down the mask of an SDA. 

As five individuals come together over the incident—the woman, a male companion, and two other SDAs, the SDA whose mask was pulled down can be seen taking a step backwards.

After the incident, a police report was filed.

According to the director of safe management measures operations at the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Ms Serene Tan, at about 10:30 on Saturday night, there was a group of diners who did not comply with the prescribed safe management measures.

This led to the MBS restaurant where the diners were to ask for assistance from SDAs at the STB.

Ms Tan told The New Paper, ”These customers allegedly refused to stop consuming alcohol by 10.30pm despite repeated advice from the food and beverage establishment and our SDA.”

The group of diners grew aggressive and even followed the SDAs out of the restaurant. While they were outside, the mask-pulling occurred. 

“STB takes a serious view of abusive acts against safe distancing personnel and will not hesitate to take firm action against those who do so,” Ms Tan added.

She also said, ”We urge members of the public to continue to cooperate with Safe Distancing personnel and comply with the instructions of personnel deployed for COVID-19 related duties,” she said. /TISG
