Over the weekend, Genting Singapore Ltd (SGX: G13) announced that Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) will be welcoming back guests from 1 July onwards.

Universal Studios Singapore, its theme park attraction, will reopen on 1 July with shortened operating hours (Thursdays to Sundays, 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.); while the S.E.A. Aquarium will reopen on 4 July with operations from Saturdays to Tuesdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This move follows the commencement of the Phase II post circuit breaker transition that will see Singapore opening up the bulk of its economy.

Prior to the announcement, RWS had to cease operations and suspend its service offerings since 4 April, aside from food and beverage operators that were deemed essential services.

The temporary closure, along with the plunge in tourist numbers due to lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, led to the group issuing a profit warning for the first half of 2020’s results.
