SINGAPORE — Over 10 places – some visited multiple times – were added by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (29 September) to a list of public venues visited by community cases while infectious.
They include Orchis Food Court at Changi Airport T1, visited six times on different days, and Alexandra Village Food Centre, visited four times on different days.
Several major shopping centres were also added to the list: Ngee Ann City, Bugis+, Bugis Junction, IMM, and Anchorpoint.
A number of eateries or shops located within shopping centres that were visited include Northpoint’s Malaysia Chiak! and Kopitiam; Tiong Bahru Plaza’s Uniqlo outlet, Queensway Shopping Centre’s Anytime Fitness.
The remaining places were standalone eateries including Napshot Cafe, Stirling Food Court, Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre and Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee.
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified, said the MOH.
As a precautionary measure, visitors who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit, it added.
They should see a doctor if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection – such as cough, sore throat and runny nose – as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history.
Individuals may access the SafeEntry Location Matching Self-Check service via the TraceTogether App, SingPass Mobile, or at wereyouthere.safeentry.gov.sg to check whether they were at these locations during the specified timings, based on their own SafeEntry records.
“There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection,” the ministry added.
The list of visited public venues excludes residence, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and public transport and will be updated on a rolling 14-days basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.
On the same day, the MOH confirmed 27 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore – its lowest daily tally since 12 March – taking the country’s total to 57,742.
