The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has rolled out the SG Clean quality mark to the tourism and lifestyle sectors as it seeks to rebuild trust in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak. Among the first to be certified are those along the popular Orchard Road shopping belt.
These include food and retail businesses in malls such as Plaza Singapura and ION Orchard, Grand Hyatt Singapore and the Singapore Visitor Centre. Two other hotels outside of Orchard Road have also been certified – Village Hotel Sentosa and Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa.
Over the next few months, STB will encourage more than 37,000 businesses within the tourism and lifestyle sectors to sign up for the SG Clean certification programme. This campaign is a government effort to rally businesses and the public to uphold good sanitation standards and hygiene practices.
Keith Tan, chief executive of STB said: “Over the next two months, we aim to audit and certify 570 hotels, attractions, and other tourism establishments. The SG Clean quality mark sends a strong signal to both locals and visitors that our tourism businesses take their cleanliness and hygiene very seriously and are committed to maintaining these high standards as a ‘new normal’ for the future.”
